Everyday Mentoring


SIGN UP TO RECEIVE EVERYDAY MENTORING WEEKLY TIPS!

Children thrive when they are surrounded by caring adults in all areas of their lives— in their homes, neighborhoods, schools, and communities. Everyday Mentoring recognizes that caring adults everywhere can make a mentoring difference for youth in their daily lives.

Tenets of Everyday Mentoring

  1. Commit to a Purpose – Be mentor-like, however you can, wherever you can, with whatever youth you encounter in your life.
  2. Recognize Every Child – By being aware and responsive to every child, more youth benefit from Everyday Mentoring interactions that nurture their “sparks” and attend to their needs.
  3. Be Present – Find opportunities to make a mentoring difference in everyday moments.
  4. Be Aware of Your Interactions – Be intentional with your presence, your communication, and your potential impact on youth in everyday moments.
  5. Empower Youth to Ask for Help – Equip children to leverage their connections with mentor-like adults already in their lives so that they can get the help they need to accomplish their goals and solve their challenges.

TMP supports you as you support the kids in your life. We provide you with tools to build better relationships with youth, and suggest ways to be more “mentor-like” in your own community.


Everyday people can make a mentoring difference in their everyday moments. If you aren’t currently a mentor in a formal mentoring program, but want to get the same skills and tools that mentors use, you can attend one of our Everyday Mentoring workshops.  

Everyday Mentoring workshops give you access to the same tips for understanding and helping youth succeed as our formal Mentoring 101 training. Everyday Mentoring workshops introduce you to skills that you can use to make a mentoring difference wherever you encounter youth in your everyday life.

Once you’ve got the skills, we hope you will be encouraged to volunteer in one of the over 140 different mentoring opportunities in our region. Use the Mentor Connector to find a mentoring opportunity near you!

Promise Coaches

Want to help youth achieve their goals, but don't have the time for a formal mentoring program?  Support the youth you already have in your life by becoming a Promise Coach.

During this training, you will learn about graduation requirements, resources to help students overcome barriers to graduation, and tips on developing a post-high school plan.  Promise Coaches are family members, teachers, bus drivers, crossing guards, coaches, community members, and librarians - ANYONE who wants to help the young people in their life reach their full potential.

Three Promise Coaches trainings are available - one specifically catered to professionals in the social services sector, one created for general community members and businesses, and one created for high school students.

Youth Coaching Workshop

Participation in sports gives young people all sorts of benefits. Youth:

  • Create healthy habits for maintaining their physical health
  • Learn to work as a part of a team
  • Develop leadership potential
  • Achieve in other areas of life, such as school and work.


Unfortunately, young people are foregoing participation in sports. Often it comes down to, “it’s just not fun anymore.”

TMP wants to attract local youth back to the sports they love. If coaches focus their energies on developing quality relationships with their athletes while they coach them, youth will win on and off the field.

TMP has teamed up with the Positive Coaching Alliance to certify local coaches as Double Goal Coaches. Certified Double Goal Coaches will focus on:

  • Coaching for Mastery of Sport (Not Just Scoreboard Results);
  • Filling Emotional Tanks; and
  • Honoring the Game
