What is 4-H Mentoring? 

4-H Mentoring of Utah County is a nationally recognized program that is operated through Utah State University since 2001. This program is designed for youth, ages 9-15, and their families. 

Youth are matched with a young adult mentor whose goal is to establish caring relationships and act as a role model, guide and friend. This program allows youth to develop their interpersonal and academic skills by participating in structured recreation, regular meetings with his or her mentor, and participation in 4-H sponsored activities. This program is FREE to all youth participants. 

Club: Site coordinators provide weekly club meetings. These are an opportunity for youth to get involved and meet others in the program. 

M&M: (Mentor and Mentee) activities are planned by the 4-H Mentoring Staff for mentors to bring their mentees. This is an opportunity for mentors and mentees to meet and befriend others in the program. 

FNO: (Family Night Out) Activities are planned and provided by the 4-H Mentoring Staff. These activities provide fun opportunities for families to bond. All costs are covered by the 4-H. 

Family Camp: This occurs during the summer. Families that attend, enroll and participate in a series of activities on an overnight camping trip. This is a fun and exciting family retreat!

Communicate with your Mentor and Site Coordinator

    • Each youth is assigned a young adult mentor. It is vital that you communicate with the mentor. Mentors will be meeting with their assigned youth each week. Your site coordinator (4-H Staff) will be communicating with you each month regarding activities and updates. Please be open in your communication with them. 

Youth meet weekly with their mentor

    • If you miss a week occasionally, that is not a big deal, if you communicate that to your assigned mentor. There will be weeks the mentor may not be able to come. Communication with your youth's mentor is important, and this is something we train each of our mentors on. 

Attend 50% of Family Night Out Activities 

    • We hold monthly FNO activities. Some months may have more than one. We ask that you attend at least six each year. These are typically on Monday evening or Saturday morning/afternoon. These are always fun and dinner is provided. 
    • Some examples of previous FNO activities include: ice skating, hiking, service projects, self-defense class, fitness day, and water games or parks.
