About TRUE Mentors

Our goal is to unearth the potential of our children and adults through relationship. Our mentors become a trusted friend and champion to our children. Our children become teachers and ambassadors to new cultures and ways of thinking for our mentors. The result is that TRUE Mentors breaks down cultural barriers in Hoboken and creates new opportunities for our children and a stronger, more compassionate community.

TRUE Mentors launched in January 2011 with a program that encourages fun and exploration of interests between mentors and mentees during structured events such as classes and field trips. TRUE Mentors classes are held at the Hoboken Boys and Girls Club at 123 Jefferson Street once a week during the school year.

Classes this semester include: Art, Music, Cooking, Archeology, Photography, Sports, Engineering, Spy tactics, Ben & Jerry’s Field Trips, and Museum Field Trips.

Mentors and children meet in organized group events or on their own individual time. Mentors help mentees with homework, set and achieve goals, try new activities, share interests and most importantly, have a good time. Matches are based on personal interests, personality and specific needs.

Mentors and mentees commit at least 1 year to the relationship with a minimum 8 hours per month spent together. Each match is supported by a TRUE Mentors relationship manager.

To get involved with TRUE Mentors or learn more about our program visit us at truementors.org or friend us on Facebook – facebook.com/truementors. For specific questions about becoming a mentor, teacher, or volunteer or if you know a child who might be right for the program please call Executive Director, James Sproule at 570-617-0911 or email jsproule@truementors.org.

A way of getting a tax write-off Mommy groups? Consider giving to Big Brothers and Big Sisters.

Without a doubt, Hoboken will soon be know as the “Fundraiser Capital of the World”. Something very leery about all this and how everyone is jumping on the bandwagon to have these affairs. Haven’t seen where anything is being monitored about them either. I’m sorry, but having seen in so many cases where funds are mis-appropriated, it strikes me very odd that this town is forever having one after another

So let me understand this, strange new adults are going to “mentor” young kids, with the permission of parents, but without the parents around. Who exactly are the adults who have the time and inclination to “mentor” young kids and form a “trusted relationship” with some unrelated child. What child would want to spend time with some old person. My parents always told me to stay away from friendly priests and teachers. I would add “mentors” to that list. Please “trusted relationship” “one on one”, “breakdown cultural barriers” read at risk kids, offered ice cream and treats and told to trust some “trusted adult” and develop a “one on one relationship” with that person, this is so wrong is so many ways; is this even a real thing, so bizarre.
