Ambassadors of Mentoring

AmeriCorps20yearslogo

The Highland Street Corps Ambassadors are AmeriCorps members who are placed at mentoring programs and youth-serving organizations statewide to help strengthen programs in the areas of match support, program development, marketing strategic planning and mentor/mentee recruitment, mentor/mentee or parent training and curriculum development, and program development and start-up. Our 2012-13 Corps served more than 40,300 hours in serving 22 host sites, and recruited 233 new mentors!

The 2014-15 host sites are gearing up to hire their Ambassadors of Mentoring for this upcoming service year. Check out the general position description - host sites are listed below.

"We're proud to support the Ambassadors of Mentoring program and view it as a win-win scenario," says Executive Director Blake Jordan of the Highland Street Foundation. "In addition to providing well-trained, motivated individuals to maximize the quality, quantity, and impact of mentoring relationships, we are also creating a new talent pipeline of young leaders, who will effect change in their communities well beyond their year of service."
