MentorMeCT (Mentee Referral Portal)

Connecting Young People with Positive Role Models

As we navigate the ongoing challenges of the pandemic, it’s more important than ever for young people to have positive role models in their lives. Mentoring can provide a valuable source of support and guidance for young people as they navigate the stresses and uncertainty of these challenging times. That’s why we’re excited to introduce MentorMeCT, an innovative new referral portal that connects young people in need of mentorship with programs in Connecticut that can help.

MentorMeCT is the first portal of its kind in the state. It”s designed to make it easy for adults to refer young people to mentoring programs that can make a real difference in their lives. Whether a young person is struggling with mental health, facing challenges at school, or dealing with the dangers of social media and substance use, a caring adult can provide the support they need to make better decisions and create a brighter future.

The benefits of mentoring for a young person are well-documented. Studies have shown that mentored youth have:

  • improved self-esteem and self-confidence
  • increased academic achievement and motivation
  • reduced risk of substance abuse
  • better decision-making and problem-solving skills
  • improved relationships with peers and adults
  • exposure to new experiences and opportunities
  • increased likelihood of success in school and career.

With MentorMeCT, it’s easy to refer a young person to a mentoring program. The portal is free to use, and mentoring programs are free of charge, so there is no financial burden on the young person’s family. All you need to do is fill out a simple form with some basic information about the young person and their needs, and MentorMeCT will take care of the rest.

By referring a young person to MentorMeCT, you can help improve their life. With the guidance and support of a positive role model, a young person can learn to navigate the challenges of the pandemic and build a brighter future. So, if you know a young person who could benefit from mentoring, don’t hesitate to refer them to MentorMeCT today.
