Become a Mentor

The Soup Of Success Community Mentoring Program…

Invites women from the community to help create an ongoing supportive community for and nurture one-on-one relationships with the women of Soup Of Success.

Will you accept the invitation?

If you have ever managed a household, parented a child, figured out how to make ends meet, held a job, or gone to school, you have all the expertise you need to be a volunteer community mentor.

Mentors are simply those who wish to assist in another woman’s growth.  It is a work of the heart.

Community mentors become part of the Soup Of Success team.  We provide training in mentoring and issues which impact SOS women.

5 Ways to Participate in the Community Mentoring Program

  • Be a Mentor to an Soup Of Success woman.
  • Become part of the community of women at monthly reunions.
  • Present a Life Skills Topic or Fun Activity at one of our monthly reunions.  Past topics and activities have included Stress Relief, Job Search, Parenting, Arts and Crafts, and games.
  • Provide a simple meal for one of our monthly reunions
  • Be part of the on-site childcare team during our monthly reunions

We ask mentors to commit to six months with our program.  Mentor activities include:

  • One-on-One Match: Each mentor is matched with a current Soup Of Success woman.  The pair strives for 3-4 contacts per month – two in person and others by phone, mail, or email.
  • Reunion Nights: The first Thursday night of each month, mentors, Soup Of Success women, and graduates gather to share a meal, a speaker or activity, and small group sharing.
