About Oregon Mentors

Oregon Mentors is a 501(c)(3)nonprofit organization and the statewide partnership for youth mentoring serving nearly 100 programs in 500 sites across the state. As the state's expert and advocate for youth mentoring, we support programs that serve youth ages 5 to 25 through community and site-based services in nearly every county in Oregon as well as Clark County, Washington. We are one of 27 state and local mentoring partnerships throughout the United States that are endorsed by MENTOR: the National Mentoring Partnership.

Though our work ultimately impacts youth who are currently being served or those who need mentoring relationships, we're not a direct-service organization. Rather, we dedicate our efforts to ensuring youth mentoring programs in Oregon and SW Washington are of the utmost quality by providing services to their staff and mentors. In effect, mentoring programs are our clients! We hope to support you so, in turn, you can serve youth through high quality mentoring.
