Adolescent Mentoring Program

The Adolescent Mentoring Program (AMP) links adolescents and young adults (ages 14-20) that are involved with the Division of Child Protection and Permanency or Children's System of Care with mentors who will serve as a positive role model and engage the adolescent in positive activities. The goal of this program is to form lifelong friendships between the youth and their mentor through bi-weekly contacts over the course of at least one year.

The AMP is a community-based program available to youth and volunteers in Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cumberland, Gloucester & Salem Counties. Referrals are accepted from any provider, given that the youth is actively enrolled in DCP&P or CSOC services. 

Whether you are interested in referring a youth to our program or are interested in becoming a volunteer mentor, you can reach out to Jennifer Kacewich, Mentor Specialist at [email protected] or 844-422-3632 Ext. 1218.
