Want to make a difference in the life of a young person who is from an under-resourced school or marginalized environment?  Want to “pay it forward” and be a positive influence on another’s life? Consider becoming a mentor for the Shepherds Program.

Shepherds is a non-profit organization that seeks to positively impact an at-risk young person’s life by, among other things, pairing that student with an adult mentor. Shepherds is actively looking for volunteers willing to mentor a student for the 2019-2020 school year. Volunteers are assigned a student to whom they will provide guidance, support, and encouragement throughout the student’s high school years.  

“My Shepherds student, Quinton, will be graduating this year and I can tell you that, more so than I could ever have imagined, this student and our relationship with him has been a blessing to me and our family,” said Lisy Martinez, Prep parent and Shepherds mentor.

If you would like to learn more about the program and this volunteer opportunity, please visit the website: or contact Shepherds Program Director, Amy Chickles, at 203-367-4273 or or Lisy Martinez at
