Mentors

Mentors are the backbone of this program! Without good mentors willing to commit their time and energies to the youth of the program, there just wouldn't be a significant outcome.  Therefore, POLESTAR-OUTDOORS places a good deal of energy and effort in recruiting and training men and women for the job.  We further believe that there are many well-qualified adult mentors who can benefit from a relationship with a youth.  With these ideas in mind we are looking for men and women who want to invest in, and learn from youth. So there is a very conscious effort to team mentor/youth with mutually beneficial counterparts.
