Making a Difference in Our Community…One Child at a Time
“To increase the developmental assets of mentees and promote resiliency in their lives by facilitating mentoring relationships with caring adults.”
About the Tehama County Mentoring Program
Tehama County Mentoring Program is a joint effort of public agencies, community organizations, law enforcement, schools and interested individuals from across Tehama County. Mentoring a child can be a magical, life changing experience for both the child and adult mentor. Our goals are to provide Tehama County youth with positive adult role models and the additional support every child needs to make successful life choices, and to offer a rewarding opportunity for community members to enrich the lives of young people by sharing their wisdom and experiences. The Tehama County Mentoring Program receives funding from various grants, but also relies upon individuals, civic organizations, and local businesses as the primary basis of financial and volunteer support. Tehama County Mentoring Program is a part of the Tehama County Department of Education Prevention Project.
