Be A Mentee

If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.

-African Proverb

As a participant of services and programs provided by Corner Health Center, you may request a mentor, join a group or be referrerd to a community based group. If you have an interest in having a mentor, this is the place for you.

Mentors are just people who’ve committed to helping you along the way. Through support and conversation, a mentor not only learns from you but also shares what they’ve learned in life, as it pertains to you. They are guides, resources, community and an asset to your development.


All Mentees must be 12-25 years old and enrolled in a Corner program or receive services at Corner Health Center.
