Creative Mentoring is the only statewide, free, mentor training program and is available to any adult interested in mentoring youth in the state of Delaware.
What started as a handful of mentors at a single school has grown into a state-wide program that supports 1800 students at 87 schools throughout Delaware, including programs using high school students as mentors. By providing application processing and standardized mentoring materials, we simplify the coordination of mentoring programs. We also directly manage mentoring programs in 17 schools in Kent and New Castle Counties. Over 2,000 adults and high school students that have been trained by Creative Mentoring are currently mentoring in schools throughout the state each year, providing over 45,000 hours of volunteer service.

The Creative Education divison offers schools and community organizations their choice of 6 social emotional learning workshops designed to provide youth with social emotional learning skills that they need to become self-aware, manage their emotions, build healthy relationships, make responsible decisions, and develop an awareness and respect for others.
Our interactive, character education programs support efforts to improve school climate, enhance Positive Behavior Support Systems (PBS) in schools, and serve as bullying prevention tools to assist schools in addressing Delaware’s anti-bullying laws. Since piloted in 2006, Creative Education programs have grown to serve over 22,000 students in 60 public schools throughout Delaware. Let’s work together to empower our youth!
