Teen Mentoring Program

Berea Teen Mentoring (BTM) brings together youth ages 13 to 18 from the Berea community in a group setting for mentorship and enrichment programs. Staff members are assisted during the weekly program by volunteers, fellow Berea College students, who act as mentors for program participants. The mission of the program is to stimulate and cultivate personal growth for young adults in the Berea community by creating opportunities for meaningful relationships in a safe, fun, intellectually stimulating environment through integrating service and learning.

In order to do this, participants come to campus once each week eat dinner with staff and volunteers at Mountaineer Dining Services, and then travel to CELTS in Stephenson Hall where teens, staff, and volunteers participate in a variety of educational, skill-building, service, and recreational activities. The overall goal of BTM programs is to provide a safe space for program participants to interact with mentors and peers, while learning valuable life lessons and skills. In addition to weekly program, BTM provides various community service projects for teens to participate within and outside of program.
