1 to 1 Mentoring

1 to 1 mentoring pairs one mentee with one mentor. ABW mentors are trained to guide mentees through an intentional decision making process, to reinforce coping skills, help mentees identity community resources, and follow up with them on resource utilization.

Who we are

Serving Together

Serving Together is a four-week experiential exercise where mentees are evaluated on their job performance while they participate in community service projects. It is meant to highlight the strengths of each mentee, as well as identify areas for growth.·      

Bonded for Life

Bonded for Life groups are check-in and skills-building groups where mentees are given the opportunity to discuss their experiences with reintegration. Skills taught in this group include challenging negative self-talk, distress tolerance, assertive communication, and positive identity development.
