A Word From Your Mentor Coordinator:

Olivia Ford- SYVPI 1-on-1 Mentor Coordinator

  • Mentors are asked to meet with their youth 2 times a month
  • On weeks they don't meet, Mentors are to  make phone contact with their youth.
  • Mentors log interactions with their mentee on the Mentor Contact Log and submit to their mentor coordinator at the end of each month.

We estimate that volunteering in the 4C Coalition Mentor Program will take an average of four to eight hours a Month of your time.

Our Programs

1-on-1 Mentoring

The 4C Coalition is a community based mentoring program with over a decade of experience recruiting and training mentors, then connecting them with youth at risk. The 4C provides mentors to youth ages 12-17 who are involved in the Juvenile system or at risk of entering it. Mentors provide guidance to youth, and youth benefit from a nurturing supportive adult relationship.


Pen or Pencil Group Mentoring  

Pen or Pencil (POP) Group Mentoring is a year-round culturally-based academic group. These groups use the Pen or Pencil mentoring enhancement curriculum created by the National Alliance of Faith and Justice (NAFJ) The Principals of POP evolve around the link between educational experiences (The Pencil) and delinquency (The Pen).While preparing mentees for broader adult responsibilities, POP integrates the resilience, youth leadership, self determination, and lessons learned from little and well-known persons and stories of civil rights and Underground Railroad history .


Seattle Youth Violence Prevention Initiative 

The Mission of the Seattle Youth Violence Prevention Initiative is to prevent and reduce youth violence which has disproportionately affected communities of color in Seattle, through coordinated, accountable community mobilization to identify youth at risk of perpetuating or being victim of violence and connect them with needed support in reaching their full potential.

Center City Initiative

One of the goals for the Center City Initiative is to work with low-income and supported housing providers to develop strategies to improve public safety and site security around the affordable housing they own or manage. Roving Mentors also is committed to supporting our youth to protect public safety and getting young people engaged and off the streets!
