Do you know someone who could benefit from having a mentor?

Our services include personalized mentoring, a community of support, and resources to help youth who are transitioning to adult living after foster care or are facing homelessness. 

Participants are invited to attend our monthly life skill workshops and fun Activity Club events. We partner with advocates in the community to help youth overcome barriers to success. 

JourneyUP Mentor Project is seeking young people who are:

  • age 16 or older, aging-out or facing homelessness in the Greater Salt Lake area
  • willing to hang out and stay in contact with a mentor for a year or more
  • able to behave safely and appropriately in one-to-one and group activities
  • Interested in having support to help them accomplish educational, employment, or adult-living goals

Young people interested in getting a mentor can complete the JourneyUP Mentor Project application form here.

Volunteer Mentors

Our volunteer mentors are positive role models, but not professional social workers. They can help connect motivated youth with opportunities and resources to accomplish goals and get off to a good start on their own. Youth who need professional-level support will be considered on a case-by-case basis, as appropriate mentors can be identified.
