Mentoring Youth Through Sports
Established in 2002, Mentor Athletics invests in the lives of low income youth through sports. Our goal is to match each of the kids in our programs with a caring mentor (Coach) who pours into his/her life.
A majority of Mentor Athletics kids live in Housing Authority of Clackamas County public housing in Oregon City; others live in Milwaukie and Southeast Portland.
Our Coaches help his/her mentee with personal goals as well as goals established by Mentor Athletics:
Be Healthy: 70 percent of Mentor Athletics kids who are matched with a Coach exercise at least 60 minutes a day. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, 42 percent of children get the recommended amount of exercise (60 minutes daily).
Be Committed: Whether it is school, sports, a job or other activity we teach the value of commitment. Our goal is for 80% of Mentor Athletics kids to have less than six absences per school year.
Be Yourself: In other words, we encourage our kids to think for themselves and not “be a follower”. We understand that not all kids are meant to be a leader, but we equip each of the kids with tools to know good and bad choices and not follow others into poor decisions.
