Hello, and Welcome to Mentor North!  We're Happy You're Here. 

WOW - we are so grateful that we exceeded both our original goal AND our stretch goal!!  

THANK YOU for showing the community how much Mentoring Matters. 

“I appreciate having a mentor in my daughter's life.  My daughter's mentor is her rock and is such a wonderful support for her when I'm not there.  I greatly appreciate all that this program has been able to offer my family.” 

NEW this year, Mentor North has launched a recurring monthly giving program to build resilience in our funding to ensure that, in turn, our work building resilience in youth, families and our community has secure ongoing support. As a Resilience Builder, your recurring monthly donation is automatically transferred from a credit card or bank account and can be adjusted at any time.  

We hope you will consider becoming a Resilience Builder so youth will have more opportunities to develop resilience while forming connections that are key to defining their future. As an organization, we remain steadfast in our commitment to understanding and connecting with our community to meet the needs of all our youth.  

We are so grateful for the support of all our volunteers, mentors, donors, and countless community partners who join us in knowing how much mentoring matters.

Youth mentoring makes a difference. Youth gain more life skills, develop new interests, and engage more in their communities when they have a mentor.  

Youth need positive adult mentors in their lives.  By being a consistent adult presence in a young person’s life, mentors can offer advice, share life experiences, and help a young person navigate challenges.

Mentoring, at its core, guarantees young people that there is someone who cares about them, assures them they are not alone in dealing with day-to-day challenges, and makes them feel like they matter.

Here at Mentor North, we celebrate youth and support their families through one-on-one mentorship and community engagement.   We believe in the dignity of all people.  We celebrate youth and families’ individual stories and welcome mentors from a variety of identities and backgrounds.

Our organization and programs are growing and your support is critical to our mission of supporting youth and their families. We have many youth waiting for a mentor and we are actively 
working to make sure they don't go without one.

With your partnership in 2023 and beyond, we will:

        1. Increase mentor recruitment efforts to help us match the 55 youth waiting for mentors right now.

        2. Enhance our training offerings to build each mentor’s confidence in all aspects of mentoring.

        3. Help us continue removing barriers for youth, mentors and families with disabilities.

Your support is greatly appreciated.  

Thank you.

Mentoring Matters!  Mentoring is a way for youth to connect with caring adults, and a reminder for youth that someone is there to support them during the challenging experiences that come their way.

Mentor North was established in 2019 as a one-on-one, community-based mentoring organization.  Mentor North is committed to providing high quality mentoring opportunities to youth and families in the Twin Ports.  Mentor North has two community-based mentoring programs: Mentor Duluth, out of Duluth, MN, and Mentor Superior, out of Superior, WI.  Both programs intersect and engage with their local communities to provide meaningful mentoring experiences for youth, families and volunteer mentors.  

Mentor North continually strives to advance equity and diversity within ourselves and our community.  We engage in anti-oppressive practices that work towards eliminating prejudice, racism, and discrimination of marginalized groups. We stand in support for the rights of LGBTQ+, Black, Indigenous, and People of Color.  Together, we are creating a vibrant and inclusive mentorship community.
