Mentoring In Detention
Adult volunteer mentors from the community are recruited, screened and trained to provide visitation to youth in the Fort Bend County Juvenile Probation Department Detention Center. The juveniles chosen to receive a mentor are usually those that: do not have anyone coming to visit them, are going to be there longer than average or just need special visits. This program is designed for mentors to provide support, listen and encourage the youth while they are being detained in the detention center.

One-To-One Mentoring
Adult volunteer mentors from the community are recruited, screened and trained and carefully matched with youth currently involved with the juvenile probation department. These youth are between the ages of 10 and 17 and are currently living at home. Each week, the mentor will offer one-to-one support and encouragement by participating in activities such as: talking at the park, playing sports, going to the movies, having dinner and going to the library. This program provides the juvenile an opportunity to spend quality time with a positive adult role model. The goal of the program is to build the youth's self-worth by developing healthy, thriving behaviors and to deter any further involvement with the juvenile justice system.

Juvenile Probation Mentor in School
Fort Bend County Juvenile Probation Department Staff Mentor visits a youth one-to-one during the school day on a weekly basis. The juvenile is either referred by a probation officer or court ordered into the mentoring program. If a one-to-one community mentor is not available, then the youth can be seen by the staff mentor during school hours. Personal attention is given by a positive adult male figure to listen, encourage, problem solve and redirect to avoid further interaction with the juvenile justice system.
