AIM: All-In Mentoring provides positive experiences and community connection between youth and mentors in a recreation-meets-mentoring program!
EXPERIENCE: AIM mentors and mentees will meet 1-2 hours per week over one year. Matches can meet at the AIM Clubhouse at the Armory, attend open gym, hit the park, or head to the Lewiston Public Library! AIM offers a safe way to connect youth with mentors who want to help make a difference in a child’s life.
GROW: Matches will get access to special events organized by Lewiston Recreation, including guest speakers, game nights, open gym, and community projects. These special events will support the learning of new hobbies, life-skills, and social skills!
THRIVE: AIM works with mentees to learn more about their interests, creating a goal-setting mentality that will help them reach success. Creating positive, supportive, healthy experiences is important for personal sense-of-self.
Applications can also be picked up at the Lewiston Recreation Department, located at 65 Central Avenue.
