With the goal of creating supportive relationships that will help young people succeed, the Mayor’s office and partners have developed a citywide mentorship program with existing and new mentors.
This effort supports both boys and girls, ages 3 – 18, in the City of Pine Bluff, to ensure that all young people reach their full potential. We envision a city in which every child is connected to someone who truly loves and cares about them.
Collaborative community approach and outreach to existing mentorship institutions and individuals
Provide the opportunity to train individual and group mentors that will service our youth
Develop a standard approach to mentorship throughout the city
The first cohort of mentors participated in a mentoring training on September 12th in the Convention Center. Ongoing training for new mentors is underway. If you are interested in being a mentor or having a child mentored, please contact Ima Etim at (870) 209-0048 or [email protected].
