Mentor Center Drive for 55 ongoing

Carson City’s original mentoring program, The Mentor Center of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Nevada, is entering a drive to find 55 new mentors before June.

The Mentor Center was awarded the Amachi Grant, funded from the stimulus money.

The Mentor Center is the only mentoring program in the state of Nevada to receive this grant, which promises money and jobs to the area in a span of three years as long as the program maintains the community partnerships and mentor quota set by the Amachi Foundation.

The Mentor Center serves area children by supporting them in a one-on-one partnership with an adult who meets with them an hour a week.

To be a mentor contact Ruth Gordon at 775-445-3346, or go online to mentor.wnc.edu.
