About the program
As part of our mission to eliminate barriers to work and independence, Goodwill-Easter Seals Minnesota is seeking passionate and dedicated individuals to share their time and talent as a volunteer mentor. Mentors assist adult participants in our ReEntry Program.

We offer one-on-one and group mentoring options during daytime and evening hours. Volunteer mentors and participant mentees may attend group mentoring which occurs weekly at our main office. Participants disucss financial literacy, overcoming barriers, parenting and other topics chosen by participants during group mentoring meetings.
