APNET Mentorship Program

Did you know?

Cincinnati is home to over 25,000 refugees. 60% of those refugees are children.

Research confirms that quality mentoring connects a young person to personal growth & development, social & economic opportunities.

As a result, mentored young people have increased self-esteem, lower dropout rates, better academic records and overall feeling of well-being.

We currently have:

  • 26 ESL Families
  • 9 French speaking students
  • 15 Swahili speaking students
  • 10 Arabic speaking students
  • 12 Somali speaking students

At APNET, we are always looking for ways to give back to those in need and build up our local communities.  We are excited to share with you that we have launched our own mentorship program in collaboration with local schools and organizations.

This is an exciting and adventurous chapter in our organization’s growth and we would like for you to come on this journey with us.

One-on-One Mentoring:

Matches an adult mentor with a student in grades 2-12; this is a one-year commitment of one hour weekly contact with your student.

Peer-to-Peer Mentoring:

Matches an adult with an adult new to the country to help navigate the American System, assimilate into their new city and culture, job training and most importantly create lasting and mutually beneficial relationships.

APNET works with various organizations and will share available resources when requested.
