Parks & Recreation is now offering monthly mentoring events during the school year. These free events are designed to give boys, ages 7-17, the tools they need to become positive, self-assured young men. With real talk and a caring approach, boys will learn how to set themselves up for personal and professional growth.


While there is no cost to participate, each minor must be registered by a parent or legal guardian. Boys can attend as few, or as many, events as they would like. Parents or guardians are not required to attend with their minor children. However, each event requires a new registration form to be submitted.

Registration closed. Check back for information on future events.

There is also a need for male mentors. Adults interested in becoming part of the program should fill out a separate application. All applicants will undergo a background screening.
