There are many ways to get involved in Get Real 24:
MENTORS will be placed with a resident who could benefit from the mentor’s knowledge or experience in some way. It is the intent of the mentor program to allow the resident to feel comfortable in growing and sharing that personal growth with someone who can relate to his or her situation somehow. A mentor will have a minimum of weekly meetings with a resident and will provide guidance in personal, education, or career matters. The mentor will help the resident gain important life connections and community connections.
SPONSOR FAMILIES will step in in areas that the resident’s biological family can or will not. The sponsor family may share birthday and holiday celebrations with the resident. The sponsor family will also be encouraged to include the resident family outings or activities that would provide the resident with a sense of belonging. The sponsor family will be more involved than a mentor, but like a mentor will help the resident gain important life connections.
