SHIELD Mentor Program is committed to giving our youth leadership development skills to succeed in life.  Together, youth and adult volunteers participate in interactive workshops, team-building exercises, leadership development, and focus on a specific theme, such as goal setting, decision making, conflict resolution, effective communication, and teamwork.  The youth mentoring program is an opportunity for youth to develop a personal plan for success through fun, interactive learning sessions with peers.


All of our programs and activities are based on the following key elements:


Focus on Self-Awareness & Relationship-Building​


To lead others, participants must first know who they are and/or want to be to connect with common interests and shared values.


Focus on Visioning, Goal Setting and Decision Making


Participants explore their desired future and set important goals while turning talk into action by supporting positive habits.


Focus on Future Growth


Participants will focus on activities to have a better direction by connecting career and college readiness to achieve their future goals.


Focus on Ongoing Achievement

Participants will implement plans for the future that involve the skills they explored. The program concludes with the planning and implementation of social change. 

Leadership Development


The SHIELD Saturday Leadership Academy is a 12-week leadership building intensive program for Greensboro youth (grades 4-12).  Sessions are held every Saturday throughout the months of February - April.  Youth participants and volunteers receive a certificate of completion after completing the full program.



Many of our students come from at risk communities.  The most effective intervention for at-risk youth is to provide them with a caring, adult mentor.


Young people who are mentored are more likely to:

  • Stay in school and graduate

  • Avoid substance abuse

  • Enroll in college

  • Become community leaders

We help youth soar high!


Our youth participants will go through the life cycle of the eagle as they develop from childhood into adulthood. Youth participants are able to earn badges and move up in the organization based on completion of the following stages.
