WHO WE ARE
Bolder Options provides wellness-based mentoring for middle school youth. Once we identify youth who need support we match them with volunteer mentors who meet with them
every week for a year. Throughout their year together, participants focus on holistic personal development through weekly activities hosted by staff. We make mentoring fun, easy, and meaningful.
"Don't be afraid to step up and be a role model, even if you don't feel like you're ready. Just do it. Mentoring showed me a lot about myself that I was blind to."
Molly, 2019 alumni mentor
