Young adults who face an opportunity gap but have a mentor are 55% more likely to be enrolled in college than those who did not have a mentor. 


 Care Fresno's mentoring program is designed to connect youth from Care Fresno neighborhoods to caring and qualified mentors. Mentors and Mentees meet 4 hours per month for a year to foster development in:


1. Education & Career Path 

2. Healthy Relationships

3. Personal Development


This program has been organically developing over recent years and we have seen a great impact made and youth's lives changed. As the need for youth prevention and interventions in the city of Fresno increases, we recognize how important mentorship is in the lives of the youth we serve. 


Mentoring is shown to have many benefits for a child or teen's current and future school, career, personal, relational, and spiritual choices.  All youth ages 7 - 18 who are enrolled in Care  Fresno programs are eligible to be mentored.
