Like traditional mentors, our mentors are adults that want to make a difference in the life of a young person by spending the time with them to build a caring relationship. But they are also something else—they are the senior member of a very special partnership, one that happens outdoors in the many great places that Portland has to offer, and one that respects a young person’s interests, abilities, and background, and allows them to make guided choices that will build their self-confidence and problem solving skills. Senior Partners serve as the bridge between a young person’s family, community, and school life, and the possibilities that exploring urban nature on their own terms can open up for learning about oneself and one’s place in the world.
If you are an adult over 21 who wants to share the urban outdoors with a young person in the 4th or 5th grade, and you possess the open mindedness to know that you can learn just as much as you can teach, then becoming a UNP Senior Partner might be for you! If you can commit 8 hours per month for a minimum of one year and have a reliable vehicle, get in touch with us! Males, adults of color, Spanish speakers, and environmental/social services professionals are especially needed.
