Sheltering Arms is seeking a Mentor for our Youth Services program in Queens. The Mentor will jointly facilitate two group meetings a week with 20 young adults on probation, and meet individually with four participants weekly, implementing an Interactive Journaling curriculum on which they will be trained. Mentors all provide support to participants in groups, individually, and on the phone, addressing areas such as goal setting, life skills, social and emotional development, personal and family relationships, and other aspects of participants' lives, helping participants break negative feeling-thought-behavior patterns and adopt improved attitudes and behaviors. Mentors will discuss journaling assignments with participants and track their progress towards identified program goals. Mentors will report to the Project Coordinator, complete weekly progress notes, and receive biweekly coaching to discuss client issues and progress.
