HOFNA’s Youth Mentoring Program awakens youth to their power, unique gifts and purpose by matching them with caring adult mentors and placing that “match” within a structured group dynamic that provides the resources youth need to reach productive, conscious adulthood. Our program further seeks to awaken society to the needs, promise and value of youth.

Our purpose is to build communities where young people are truly seen and not just watched, where society understands and accepts its responsibility in meeting the needs of all young people, and where young people bring their gifts back into their communities as productive members of society. As part of the program, we train young people on volunteerism and servant leadership building them to be active members of their communities.

Objectives of the Mentoring Program

  • Provide young people with a vital sense of belonging.
  • Give young people a sense that the greater community also cares about them.
  • Start young people on their way to conscious adulthood.
  • Support young people on their journey to discover their true potential.

  • Nurture transformation in both the individual and society at large.
