Be A Mentor VISTA Mentoring Program Coordinator
 
 
 
As a VISTA at Be A Mentor, you will manage a mentoring program by creating volunteer recruitment campaigns, onboarding and interviewing mentors, mentees and their families, creating matches, and supporting mentors and mentees through relationships, innovative activities, and program evaluation. You will also Enhance tools by adding a step-by-step implementation manual for mentoring programs, including ongoing mentoring support and training materials in key subject areas. Be a Mentor, Inc. seeks to help children and youth from challenging and vulnerable circumstances develop the assets necessary to make healthy life choices, set realistic goals, act with determination and ultimately build vibrant successful lives for themselves through direct contact and relationships with caring and positive adult role models. Leveraging its 29 years of expertise as a nationally recognized leader providing standalone mentoring services, Be A Mentor (BAM) now partners with existing youth-serving agencies to provide mentors to the youth served by our partners. Since its founding in 1992, BAM has recruited, screened, trained, and matched mentors with thousands of high-need youth. Through its Volunteer Management System (VMS) – a comprehensive, cloud-based application designed to support the entire volunteer lifecycle – BAM leverages its cutting-edge, technology-driven programs and its evidence-based practices to scale mentoring at partnering youth services agencies, who may already be serving thousands of high-need youth. This disruption in the traditional mentoring model provides mentors to the maximum number of mentees that is cost-effective and assures that common functions are not duplicated at partnering agencies.
