What is the Youth and Families with Promise 4-H Mentoring Program?

The Youth & Families with Promise 4-H Mentoring Program is a grant based mentoring program.  It is funded by the National 4-H Council with a grant from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention.  In this program, developed through Utah State University 4-H, children ages 9-16 are matched with a mentor in a group mentoring situation.  The mentors meet with the children weekly for 1 ½ to 2 hours.  All the mentors and children are registered 4-H leaders and members.  They use the 4-H project groups as a way to work on life skills such as: public speaking, self-confidence, written language, team work skills and so much more.  The children get a chance to form a bond with a caring and consistent adult. The goals of the program are to improve academics, increase social skills and strengthen family bonds.
