Program Overview: TeamMates serves nearly 800 youth in the Metro Omaha area. TeamMates is a school-based, one-to-one mentoring program. Matches meet at the school during school hours. This provides a safe, neutral environment with games, activities and staff resources to help support the match. The focus of the TeamMates mentoring relationship is for an adult volunteer to help build a positive relationship with a student in order to help them reach their full potential.

Volunteer Opportunities: Volunteers (Mentors) meet with their mentees for one hour each week. By showing interest in their life, mentors can increase the likelihood that the youth will graduate from high school and become contributing members of society. Mentors help identify the talents of young people that provide them a sense of hope and vision for their life. To get involved, visit teammates.org to download an application, or call 1-877-531-8326. Potential mentors will need to attend a short training course, and then they will meet their student. Through the application process, applicants are able to choose what school they would like to mentor at. In the Metro Omaha area TeamMates is a part of the following school districts: Bellevue, Millard, Westside, Ralston, Papillion-La Vista, CORE Catholic Schools, Omaha Public Schools, Gretna, Council Bluffs, and Plattsmouth. TeamMates matches are based on common interests and hobbies
