A mentor is a person who guides a less experienced person by building trust and modeling positive behaviors.


​Applicants are required to identify a mentor during the enrollment process.  CGYCA does not provide mentors for Cadets.  However, we do recommend that you consider coaches, family friends, neighbors, teachers or local churches to assist in your search for a mentor.

A mentor should be able to invest in the life of a CGYCA cadet and provide, personal, education, and career guidance after graduation.

Qualifications of a Mentor?

  • May NOT be a parent, step-parent or guardian

  • Must be same sex as cadet 

  • Must be at least 21 years of age

  • Must consent to a criminal background check

  • Committed to supporting Cadet for 17 ½ months of the program.
