Mentor - (Year Round)

At Good Samaritan, we want to set the best example for our students. Through a program that focuses on the 40 Developmental Assets set by the Search Institute, we target areas where our students might need some extra attention. Students that show signs of risk are paired with mentors. Mentoring provides our clients with a positive adult role model in their life. By engaging with our students, our mentors will provide a demonstration of these assets, like integrity and goal setting.

School Year: 
Every 2nd and 3rd Saturday from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Mentors must be at least 18 years old with a high school diploma or GED, and be able to commit to at least four (4) consecutive monthly visits at an hour each time.

Summer:
Monday - Thursday from 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
Mentors are invited to our Camp Good Sam location to meet with their mentee(s) during our program time. 

Office Assistant - (Year Round) 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
