TRUE Mentors offers free weekly enrichment program on Tuesday evenings at the Boys & Girls Club of Hoboken (123 Jefferson Street) from 6 – 8 p.m. during the school year. Volunteer are needed each week to interact with our mentees, run the activities and build TRUE relationships that unearth excellence in the students we serve. Interested volunteers need to first fill out an online application. Next, they can sign up online for the new volunteer orientation, which includes a brief over view of our mission & programs and an opportunity to meet the mentees and shadow a volunteer.
Our three-week long clubs change monthly, with every month offering a new club options for children. Clubs are offered on a variety of different enrichment topics including art, science, cooking, and more! Between clubs we take free field trips to local businesses for youth to explore local businesses, different career options, and community resources.
The classes are open to all children between the ages of 7 – 13, and they create an opportunity for children to interact with other children and the volunteers. An example class structure is below.
