Who We Are
MENTOR Nebraska is an Affiliate of MENTOR, the unifying champion of youth mentoring across the United States. Our mission is to increase both the quality and quantity of mentoring in Nebraska and close the mentoring gap for the one in three young people growing up without a mentor.
MENTOR Nebraska a non-partisan, 501 (C)(3) nonprofit organization that unites our statewide mentoring movement. We serve as a clearinghouse for training, resources, public awareness, and advocacy, providing the critical link between national efforts and local Nebraska organizations. We ensure mentoring programs have access to research-informed and evidence-based practices, tools, and resources so young people in their programs are in supportive relationships that meet quality standards and are safe and effective. We collaborate with a vast number of mentoring programs, youth-serving organizations, schools, nonprofits, and government organizations to increase their capacity and effectiveness.
