Become a Mentor

When a boy is mentored into a well-developed man, there are huge rewards – not just for the boy but for the adult mentor as well. Please fill out the mentor application to start the process. You may opt to mentor a group of boys or one-on-one.

Mentor Application

Become a Mentee

Thank you for your interest in Son of a Saint. We know it can be hard for a single mom to raise a boy. Although we have limited space, your application is welcome and will be considered carefully. Please note that we can only accept boys who have lost their father to violence, natural causes, deportation, long term incarceration of 15 years or more to serve or adopted by a single mother. We currently do not accept willful neglect cases due to capacity restrictions. Boys enter the program between the ages of 10-12 and participate until the age of 21. We currently have 100 young men in our program.

UPDATE: Due to the onset of COVID-19, we must push back acceptance of new mentees originally scheduled to enter the program during June 2020. All applications previously submitted will still be thoroughly reviewed and we will continue to receive them year-round. Son of a Saint will resume acceptance of its next official mentee class in December 2020.
