"Mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen and a push in the right direction." 

-John C Crosby


Think back to your own childhood. There are probably one or two adults outside your family whom you remember as having made a difference for you, even if only just by being there. Now it is your turn to be there for a child.

Talbot Mentors make an initial one-year commitment, with the goal of spending a few hours per week with a child who can really benefit from a positive role model.

Every child has boundless potential. Talbot Mentors provides the platform on which to establish real, meaningful, long-lasting bonds between caring adults and young people.

By volunteering as a mentor, you can help increase the network of support available to Talbot County youth.

Mentors are men and women from all walks of life who share an interest in children. Mentors are interviewed, carefully screened and thoughtfully matched with students, taking interests and life experiences of each into consideration. Initial orientation, ongoing training, and professional support help volunteers with the challenges that can naturally arise in any relationship.

"All kids need a little hope, a little help and somebody who believes in them." - Magic Johnson
