WRAC Youth Mentoring volunteers attend and participate in the weekly support groups and model healthy behaviors and share their own experiences. Each volunteer is matched with a teen and spends time during each of the weekly meetings mentoring in small groups and/or one-on-one.

Volunteers are required to attend 12 hours of training as well as the weekly support group meetings.
