mentors to youth (ages 11-18). Outside The Outerbelt offers support individually and in a
group setting. Some of activities include a structured development curriculum, various
sporting events / venues, fishing, bowling, camping, cultural and educational events).
Mentors are required to agree to a one year commitment to ensure relationship building

Outerbelt is to not only assist with guidance, but to also develop the mentees to
eventually become mentors and give back to the community.

opportunities outside of the school-based setting.
