Get Involved - Individuals
Interested in getting involved with mentoring, but not sure where to start? We can help!

Formal Mentoring

There are currently 1,065 young people on waiting lists looking to be matched with mentors in local programs. As an individual, there are a variety of ways you can get involved with mentoring.  You can find a program and volunteer...we'll help you find a program that fits your availability and interests.  You can also search for a mentor for a young person in your life.  Check out the below boxes to learn more!

Everyday Mentoring

In everyday life, adults can find themselves fulfilling the role of a mentor. These naturally occurring relationships have many of the same benefits to youth that formal mentoring relationships have!

Adults who find themselves in this role may want additional information or knowledge to better support their mentees. Check out our Online Resource Library for Everyday Mentoring tips. You may also find our Resources for Mentors to be helpful as you strengthen relationships with young people in your life.

We also have an Everyday Mentoring training for organizations that would like their constituents to become more mentor-like in their interactions with youth. This training is highly adaptable depending on the needs of the organization and available on-site. To learn more about this opportunity, contact us at info@mentoringpittsburgh.org.


As community leaders and as servant leaders, we are heartbroken by the recent tragedies and know that a genuine and ongoing commitment to real change is necessary to confront and combat racism.  We stand in solidarity with our peers, our neighbors, our colleagues and our friends with an even stronger resolve to be present, to listen, to learn and to act.  If there’s one thing we’ve learned in our 25 years of serving the community, it’s this: 

We are stronger together

We are committed to actively fighting racism and to using our voices for better.  We will continue to bring strength and hope; to foster meaningful conversations around change; to deliver services that are inclusive and will support all.  We encourage you to join us and find ways to improve race relations in our community and beyond.  Let’s all work toward better – better connection, better allyship, better love for one another.  Let’s work together to make this world a better place for our kids.  Now is the time and they’re depending on us.
