mentoring


Future Link carefully screens, trains and supports volunteer adults who work with Future Link students for a year or longer. Our mentors are caring professionals who serve as positive role models and help our young adults focus on their futures.  Mentors reinforce the key principles of our Self-Advocacy Skills and Career Development Seminar and encourage goal-setting with respect to post-secondary education and career.  Together they develop a detailed plan that includes:


  • Short and long-term personal and career goals;
  • Educational or training plans, with specific details of where, when and how;
  • Projection of income and expenses;
  • Contingency plans.

Mentoring a motivated, high potential Future Link Seminar graduate is an incredibly rewarding experience. The Future Link staff supports our mentors by facilitating access to needed academic, career, and community resources. We are always available to help with the unique issues that our students sometimes face. 


You have so much to share...wisdom, experience, and career-based knowledge.  Become a mentor and experience the reward of helping a young adult achieve their goals.
