Mshauri is a Swahili word that refers to someone who offers advice and guidance to others. It can be used to describe a professional counselor, a mentor, a teacher, or even a friend who offers wise counsel. Mshauris use their experience, knowledge, and insights to help others make better decisions or to overcome challenges. Essentially, a Mshauri is someone you can turn to for advice and support when going through difficulties in life.

At Mshauri mentoring program, we are committed to making a positive impact in the lives of youth and parents who need our support. As our program continues to grow, we have established new policies to ensure that we can provide impactful services to those who need it most. Here are the new requirements for participation in our program:


- To enroll your child in our mentoring program, you will need to attend an in-person meeting scheduled through Calendly on Sundays from 12 PM to 3 PM or Wednesdays from 12 PM to 6 PM. This will give us the opportunity to go over the program and necessary paperwork with you before your child begins.


- Each parent is required to pay a monthly fee of $10 per child participating in the program ($120 per year).


- We also require that each parent volunteer two hours a month for each child participating in the program to support the overall functioning of the program. This ensures that parents take an active role in their child’s development while supporting the overall functioning of the program.


- If your child participates in our free Mothers Break Day program on Sundays from 9:30 AM to 3:00 PM, you must register each Sunday through our website. Please be prompt for drop off and pick up.


We understand that these requirements may require a level of commitment, but they are necessary for us to continue to grow and provide impact to at-risk and underserved communities in low to moderate-income neighborhoods. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
