What is Mentor's Plus? Mentor's Plus is a mentoring program for youth, 8-17 years old in the Clarkston
School District. Once a child is registered in the program, they are matched with an adult within the
community. Adult/Child matches are made to meet the needs of the youth. It gives youth the opportunity
to build a trusting relationship with a caring adult, who dedicates to spend 2-4 hours a week together.
We currently have matches, however there are many more unmatched youth on our waiting list. Sadly, the
list is growing.
Created in 1973, Oakland County Youth Assistance's Mentors Plus program matches caring adults with
young people who need a positive, adult figure in their lives. Volunteers can choose to work with
an at-risk youngster, or they may want to become involved in delinquency prevention or intervention.
Mentoring is fun , creates new friendships,
and allows volunteers to share their lives with a child or
young adult who needs their attention and support. This program has proven results. By contributing a
few hours each month, mentors can help guide a young person with minor court involvement back onto
the right track, or stabilize someone who is suffering from some family difficulty over which they
have no control.
