Mentoring Projects

Mentoring Projects

C.U.I. unites different organizations and individuals who are committed to making a difference in a young person's life. Our collaborative efforts are far-reaching, e.g., neighborhood associations, athletic leagues, churches, and educational institutions, just to name a few. We seek to offer mentoring training, provide resources for families, and make mentoring matches where possible.

  • Mentoring is a way of providing guidance and support to young people.
  • Successful relationships are those in which mentors see their role as supporting the youth, and helping them to grow and develop personally.
  • Learning to trust (especially for young people who have already been let down by adults in their lives) is a gradual process.

According to the National Mentoring Center, there are 10 qualities of an effective mentor:

  1. Be a friend.
  2. Have realistic goals and expectations.
  3. 3. Have fun together.
    4. Give your mentee voice and choice in deciding on activities.
    5. Be positive.
    6. Listen.
    7. Respect the trust your mentee places in you.
    8. Remember that your relationship is with the youth, not the youth's parent.
    9. Remember that you are responsible for building the relationship.

CUI provides mentoring to juveniles in Juvenile Justice System by providing positive self-esteem, goal setting and conflict resolution tools.
Mobilize youths and young adults in healthy civic activities, engaging in positive discussions with authoritative figures, including law enforcement. Partner with DeKalb Board of Health as member of Civic Advisory Council.

C.U.I. offers community service hours and provides mentoring and office experience to help people move in a direction that creates a positive self-esteem and become civic and mission minded.
