New Beginnings Mentoring Program

The New Beginnings Mentoring Project, sponsored by the Greater Hilltop Area Shalom Zone, is offered at West High School.

Mentoring provides young people the opportunity to explore career options, seek leadership guidance, educational resources, support with developing social and decision-making skills, and continue to build a positive supportive social network by focusing on relationship building, goal setting, SMART decision making, and financial literacy.

What is a Mentor?

Mentoring is a mutual relationship and partnership between two individuals who share common interests. A mentor is a trusted adult friend with a long-term, consistent commitment to provide guidance and support to a young person. By engaging a mentor, a young person should feel empowered to take greater responsibility for their lives, families, community, and program.
