WLM Mentoring Program

Share friendship and your time as you connect with youth at a local recreation center encouraging positive choices for their lives. 

What Does a Mentor Do?

According to Merriam-Webster a mentor is “a trusted guide.” WLM mentors share their knowledge, life experience, faith, and friendship through the following best practices. 


  • Playing basketball, volleyball, ping-pong, pool, etc. - focus on having fun
  • Emphasize friendship instead of changing a youth’s behavior
  • Actively listening – focus on what they are saying and not your response
  • Being real – build age-appropriate friendships
  • Trust-builder – be consistent and keep your word
  • Encourager – look for ways to inspire courage, hope, and confidence
  • Being patient – realize it takes time to connect and build trust
  • Faith in action – give your full time and attention; being sincere 

Where Will I Mentor?

WLM partners with the Haltom City Recreation Center to provide mentors to youth after school.  The Recreation Center is across the street from Haltom Middle School (a Title 1 School).

When Would I Mentor?

WLM mentors commit to at least 2 hours a week at the Haltom City Recreation Center. This can be anytime between 4 PM - 9 PM Monday - Friday.
