When you were a teen, did you have someone in your life that helped you become who you are today?  Being a Brother To Brother mentor is one of the most fulfilling and pleasurable things you’ll ever do. You have the opportunity to help shape a teen’s future for the better by empowering him to achieve.


When you take time out of your day to enrich the life of a child, you’re making a real difference. For a few hours a week, you can give a young man the invaluable gift of your time and attention.  By simply changing their perspective of what the world can offer, you can literally start changing their lives.


Our mentors come from diverse backgrounds and professions – law enforcement, small business, education, government and more!  They have lots of energy and demonstrated leadership skills, and a desire to lead and build strong minds.  They are regular people, just like you, and don’t need any special degrees or job skills — just a willingness to want to positively influence a young persons life.
