Absolutely. All mentors go through a thorough vetting process and are required to pass a background check and receive training before they begin mentoring. As volunteers, mentors are subject to all volunteer requirements for the school or site at which they mentor. Our priority is the safety and wellbeing of our students and mentors. All mentoring is held in a designated open and supervised space. For further information on mentoring guidelines and policies, please contact mentorsuccess@hisheartfoundation.org.
