Mentoring Services

We offer mentoring to the power of best practice.

What are mentoring services?

An effective partner for success

Transforming the power of mentoring for vulnerable children.

Behind every success story is a great mentor: a role model who goes the extra mile to coach, encourage, sponsor, and counsel you during a formative time. Elk Hill’s mentoring services take that timeless relationship and apply research-based techniques for helping children with mental and behavioral health challenges.

Our mentors provide structured, one-on-one support from qualified adults with strong human services and behavioral health experience for children, teens, and young adults ages 4-21. Mentors provide activities to increase children’s participation and engagement in their community. They offer support, coaching, and supervision to build:

  • Communication skills
  • Problem-solving skills
  • Interpersonal skills
  • Social skills
  • Age-appropriate behavior
  • Constructive use of leisure time
  • Resiliency
