With nearly 40 years of experience in mentoring throughout Windsor County, Windsor County Partners is fully committed to promoting and sustaining positive, one-on-one intergenerational Partnerships.
We match carefully screened, caring adult volunteers (“Senior Partners”) who provide fun, trusting relationships with boys and girls between the ages of 5 and 18 (“Junior Partners”) who reside anywhere in Windsor County.
Whether over a short lunch or for two hours a week, the mentoring partnerships create rare opportunities for our Junior Partners to have new experiences and broaden their horizons. For Senior Partner volunteers, it provides a chance to tap into the enthusiasm of youth while offering insight to the challenges facing young people today.
How You Can Help
Volunteering as a mentor does not require any special credentials. It does, however, require that you like to have fun, share what you know, avail yourself consistently, listen attentively, demonstrate patience and tolerance and are open to learning from your young friend. We work hard to match mentors and youth according to interests, proximity, needs and personality, assuring as best we can that matches are mutually fulfilling.
We invite you to share your time, skills or other resources with us!
