Oldham County Court Diversion Mentor
Hope Collaborative has partnered with the Department of Family and Juvenile Services to provide mentors for youth within their Court Diversion Program. This program gives youth who have committed low-level misdemeanors an opportunity to have their records expunged with the completion of all program requirements.
Hope Collaborative mentors are caring adults who devote time to teens involved in the Court Diversion Program, with the goal of helping each youth achieve their potential and discover their strengths. Within the Hope Collaborative Court Diversion Mentoring Program, mentors also serve as group facilitators while participating in the eight-week workshops administered by Hope Collaborative.
Mentors are asked to commit to serving with their mentees for the entire period of each youth's Diversion Period (up to six months). This commitment includes checking in with each mentee throughout their time within the Diversion mentoring period.
