Preparing today's at-risk youth to be the leaders of tomorrow
A New Kind of Mentorship Program
PLOT mentors demonstrate leadership qualities and act as positive role models in the lives of young mentees, juvenile and criminal justice involved youth. Mentors work with mentees for a minimum of one year, spending 4-6 hours per month in their communities. Whether they go to a basketball game, meet with a local leader, or grab a bite to eat, the mentor and mentee work together to build rapport and inspire trust.
When mentees need additional support, PLOT will make referrals to various specialists within its network. Overall, PLOT believes that all youth can avoid incarceration or re-incarceration through realizing their personal and educational goals. PLOT mentors believe that the time to give up on a child is never.
