4-H Mentoring

Belonging. Independence. Generosity. Mastery.

Become a Mentor

Are you ready to make an impact in the life of a youth in your community?

To become a mentor, you will need to be at least 18 years of age and have a vehicle. Those wishing to become mentors will be formally interviewed, required to pass a background check and attend trainings prior to being matched with a youth. Once all the required preliminary work has been completed, the process of matching you with a youth will begin.

Why is having a mentor so important? Learn more about the impact of mentoring. 

As a mentor you will be matched with a youth (ages 9-15) in Utah County. 

  • Be a guide, advocate, friend and role model. You are NOT a tutor, counselor or social worker. 
  • Help your mentee feel a sense of belonging, develop independence, understand the importance of generosity, and master new skills
  • Introduce your mentee to new and different environments
  • Attend the monthly 4-H sponsored Mentor & Mentee Activities 
  • Commit to giving at least one hour of time each week for a minimum of one year
  • Meet four times/month (usually once a week) with the youth you mentor
Are you ready to make an impact in the life of a youth in your community?

We are so glad you're here! 

The impact you make in the life of the child you are paired with may forever change their future. As you begin mentoring, please consider this carefully: you can have a very positive impact on your "mentee's" life, or you can have a very detrimental effect if you choose to do this program only partially.
