Be a Mentor

The Ready to Achieve Mentoring Program (RAMP) is a career-focused mentoring program for youth with disabilities involved with or at-risk of becoming involved with the juvenile justice system. The majority of youth in the juvenile justice system have at least one disability, making all youth with disabilities a risk. The RAMP model utilizes a combination of group, peer, and one-on-one mentoring to promote the successful transition of RAMP youth to employment, continued learning opportunities, and independent living. Youth meet weekly to develop social skills, self confidence, work readiness skills, participate in mock interviews, create resumes and career exploration. Learn more.
