Parents as Partners

Parents and guardians are an integral part of the Mid-Ohio Youth Mentoring match at every step of the process. Not only will you provide information about your child’s strengths and needs, but you’ll also approve the selection of the Mentor chosen by the agency.

Once the match is made, parents remain closely involved in several key ways, including:

  • Approving match activities and supporting your child’s involvement
  • Asking your child questions about the match meetings, and reporting any concerns to the agency staff
  • Regularly reporting back to the agency about your child’s progress and milestones in the match relationship – Mid-Ohio Youth Mentoring will contact you regularly, but we welcome your feedback at any time.
  • Participating in training on child safety offered by Mid-Ohio Youth Mentoring staff, and communicating with your child about the training you receive.
