JUMP (Johnston yoUth Mentoring Program) is a one to one youth mentoring program between community volunteers and 6-12th grade students. Mentors help mentees find personal and academic success by being a positive role model in their lives. They listen, encourage, and demonstrate commitment while supporting mentees as they work to achieve their goals.
Mentors meet with their students for one hour per week, during school hours. They participate in various activities throughout the school year. JUMP staff will work with you to find a day and time that fits your schedule. For many mentors and mentees this time spent together is a weekly highlight!
