In Partnership with New Haven Public Schools, we created the state’s first mentee-referral portal specifically for New Haven students! The portal connected young people to mentoring programs in the New Haven area, where they could be matched with caring adults. Supported by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), the portal was recently expanded to include the whole state as part of our R.E.A.L. program.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out to Kendra Epps who will be happy to provide you with the assistance you need.
