Resources and Recommendations for the COVID-19 Pandemic:

With the closure of Vermont’s schools due to the COVID-19 pandemic, MENTOR Vermont recommends that all mentoring programs suspend all in-person mentoring for the time being. We realize that this is a different and difficult time for everyone and while the youth mentoring programs serve value and look forward to spending time with their mentors, as a community we need to all do what we can to slow the spread of COVID-19, avoid putting undue strain on our medical system, and protect those who are most vulnerable.

Given Governor Scott’s relaxing of some restrictions on May 6th, we realize that mentoring programs are wondering when it may be possible to resume in-person mentoring. Learn more about how your program can create a future plan to do so here.

Visit our COVID-19 Resources Page (which will be continually updated) to learn more about alternative ways that programs and mentors can continue to support youth and their families during this crisis. Thank you for all you do to support young people in your community! If you are looking for support/guidance you can reach out to us at any time. Stay safe and be well!
