At Seedling, our mission is to support children challenged by parental incarceration with innovative, reasearch-driven, school-based mentoring. With Seedling, you will be mentoring a child one day a week during the child's lunch time. Mentors commit an average of 30-45 minutes each week for a school year to build a friendship with their youth while serving as a positive role model.

Our mentors are provided with ideas and tips on helpful and fun age-appropriate activities, such as playing games or creating arts and crafts, to engage their children. Mentors listen to their youth, laugh with their youth, and inspire their youth to reach their greatest potential. Our program staff will work closely with you and the schools to ensure that you have the resources and on-going support you need to be a successful mentor.

For more information or to apply today, please visit or call us at our office at 512-323-6371. 

All prospective mentors must complete a Mentor Profile on our website, pass criminal background and reference checks, and attend a Mentor Orientation, which provides solid practical information about the mentoring process and the importance of your role prior to your introduction to a child.

Following the Mentor Orientation, you will be offered a bevy of continuing education opportunities to help you enhance in your service to your youth.
