The New York State Mentoring Program Seeks Mentors

Posted on January 1, 2023

The New York State Mentoring Program (NYSMP) is a statewide provider of mentoring program services and school-based mentoring models. The NYSMP creates supportive mentor relationships for children in elementary, middle, and high schools. Programs are one school year site based, and 1 to 1. Mentors are positive role models who guide students with respect, structure, and compassion to build positive life skills.


Children can succeed despite overwhelming personal, economic, and structural obstacles. They often do so with the support of a caring mentor in their lives. Mentoring outcomes include greater participation in school, improved attendance, higher graduation and college admission rates, and better overall performance.


1. Fill out the Mentoring Application by visiting the New York State Mentoring Program website or calling 1-518-473-3562 to have an application mailed.
2. After your application has been received, you will be contacted by a New York State Mentoring Program staff to discuss the required screening process and training.
3. You will be matched with a Mentee at a nearby school and Program staff will support you throughout your mentoring experience.

The New York State Mentoring Program was first launched in 1984 and has since matched over 12,000 students with dedicated and valued mentors!
