Why Mentoring is Important
The Mentoring Program at Reentry Center for Women is designed to enable our clients to soar to new heights and be all that she can be. On Day 1, the client is matched with a mentor.
The benefits to mentoring formerly incarcerated women can be measured by the reduction of women re-entering the criminal justice system. When our clients connect and form positive bonds with other women who have previously served time and successfully turned their lives around, they are less likely to return to prison.
Even if you have never been incarcerated, but possess the compassion necessary to make a difference in the lives of our clients, we would still like to hear from you. RCW has many mentoring opportunities available to better serve our clients. Most of our mentors have prior experience mentoring at-risk populations in a nonprofit environment which is why our mentor program is so successful.
Becoming a mentor is quick and easy. Please take a moment to fill out our mentor application. Once your application has been submitted, a staff member will contact you. Alternatively, you may send an email expressing
your interest to firstname.lastname@example.org.
