About

RE:Entry Mentorship Project

The RE:entry Mentorship Project provides supportive services, information, referrals, and mentor pairing for individuals returning to community from incarceration. These supportive services and personal guidance empower these individuals to overcome potential barriers and achieve their goals.

Our Community Mentors are volunteers. They receive no financial compensation; they mentor because they care. Our mentors want to cheer on, empower, and guide participants towards success.

If you desire to bridge the gaps for the formerly incarcerated, you can apply to be a mentor online or stop by the RE:center for a paper application.

MENTORSHIP WORKS
Studies show that people leaving prison (or jail) who have a mentor are less likely to be incarcerated. This program expects commitment, willingness to change, and open communication. By choosing this program, you are showing that you want to make positive changes in your life.

The Community Mentorship Program is tremendously successful in other counties. mentor trained to provide resource referrals, assist with goal completion, and give emotional support. Many facilities provide reentry services but lack one-on-one mentorship. Mentors are the missing link in successful reentry.

If you would like to work with a Community Mentor, contact us today. You can also schedule an appointment with our project coordinator today. Even if you feel that you are ready for a mentor, stop by the RE:center. Our team will help you reach your goals. Watch this video from our parent project, Yavapai Reentry Project.
