A mentor empowers a person to see a possible future, and believe it can be obtained.

A Message
From Our CEO

One of the cornerstones of the success that HOPE for Prisoners has experienced has been our long-term mentoring program.  We believe that connecting each of our clients to a trained and qualified mentor is critical to their successful reintegration into our community.

Our amazing team of mentors has given so much over the years and HOPE for Prisoners remains grateful to each man and woman who has selflessly poured out their time and energy to make an impact in the lives of our valued clients.

We are looking to grow our team of mentors!! As we have navigated the challenges of Covid-19 this year, we have had to adapt and conform to some new processes.  One of the blessings that has come out of all of the changes, is the advancements that we have been able to make in the areas of remote learning and training and distance communication.  Our capabilities to connect and grow even when we are not in physical proximity has really opened our eyes to new and great possibilities.

Because of this, we are opening up our mentor training to volunteers outside of Las Vegas.  As always, we are looking for dedicated individuals who are willing to spend a minimum of one hour per week for at least 12 months, mentoring, guiding, sharing life and helping our clients to accomplish their goals.

If you or someone that you know is interested in applying to serve as a volunteer mentor for HOPE for Prisoners, please complete our application.  This is the first step in the process to becoming part of an amazing team!

Once we have received and reviewed your mentor application, you will be contacted by a staff member from HOPE for Prisoners who will advise you if your application has moved forward and what the next steps are.  If for any reason, it is not the right time for you to serve as a mentor for HFP, we have many other opportunities and areas where you might be able to serve.
