The vision of the MENTOR NEWARK (formerly Newark Mentoring Movement) is that all school-aged youth have supportive, high-quality mentoring relationships with adults and older youth in their community, complementing family relationships. We work to increase the quality and quantity of mentoring relationships serving Newark youth. MENTOR NEWARK is a network which provides training, professional development and support services for schools, organizations and individuals seeking to serve Newark youth through mentoring.  


Relationships matter. Make a connection with a young person in your community. A powerful mentoring relationship can change lives. It can change yours.

*Become the person you needed

when you were younger.
