DMS Mentoring and Volunteer Services

Children who have caring, involved adults - mentors - in their lives do better in school, are less likely to abuse alcohol or drugs, and are generally healthier and happier. Unfortunately, too many children do not have positive adult role models who are active in their lives.

Department of Management Services team members are encouraged to volunteer as mentors in local schools and in conjunction with other local youth organizations. Team members are allowed up to five hours of administrative leave each month to mentor. The agency challenges each division to recruit 10 percent of its employees to mentor every year. Not all mentoring activities require a weekly commitment and no special skills are required. A desire to make a difference is all it takes.
