Mentoring

Partners in Prevention Mentoring Program provides youth, Kindergarten – 12th grade, with a caring, trained, adult friend to serve as a mentor to a young person needing guidance, support and encouragement.

Partners in Prevention Mentoring Program started as a pilot project in 1996. Since that time, the program has grown and now provides children with caring adult mentors in the following school districts: Longview, Pine Tree, Spring Hill, White Oak, Gladewater, Hallsville, Kilgore, and New Diana.

The Mentoring Program has received recognition over the years, including the Governor's Volunteer Award for Forever Friends; Texas Association of Partners in Education; and highlighted in the 100 Best Communities for Young People award to
Longview in 2008 and 2011.
