Vermont Mentoring Grants

MENTOR Vermont envisions a future in which every young person in Vermont has the supportive mentoring relationships they need to grow and thrive. In order to achieve this goal, we have collaborated with our funding partners to create the Vermont Mentoring Grants. With funding support from the A.D. Henderson Foundation and the Vermont Department for Children and Families, MENTOR Vermont strives to support, expand, and enhance the quality of existing mentoring programs, while also helping to establish new youth mentoring programs. We support this critical work by grantmaking and providing technical assistance, with the ultimate goal of sustainably increasing the quality and quantity of mentoring matches statewide.

The 2023-2024 Vermont Mentoring Grant Application Process is currently closed.
