MENTOR Washington

Created in Partnership With MENTOR Washington

MENTOR Washington (MW) promotes, supports, and expands quality mentoring that fosters positive youth development and academic success. MW offers support to mentoring programs in Washington that are doing the most important work – matching young people with caring adults.

MW’s vision is that every child in Washington in need of a mentor has one, and that each mentor is trained and supported to maximize the positive impact mentoring can have on their ability to thrive and lead happy, successful lives.

It is estimated that here are more than 240,000 children in Washington State who could benefit from having a mentor and only 30,000 who have one.  This leaves a gap of more than 200,000 youth without a mentor.

MENTOR Washington leads the effort to close this gap by:

  • Maximizing the number of youth each of our state’s existing mentoring programs can serve
  • Creating new mentoring efforts state-wide to support more youth through mentoring
  • Providing professional development, training, technical assistance, and evaluation support to every mentoring program state-wide
  • Infuse the best practices of mentoring into existing youth development relationships (coaches, teachers, camp counselors, youth group leaders)

The Moyer Foundation is proud to partner with MENTOR Washington to develop our mentoring programs at our two signature camps: Camp Mariposa and Camp Erin.
