Elijah - peer mentor for Genesis Homestead


Despite being in different locations, all of our homes follow the same guidelines and criteria. There is a Peer Mentor for each home.  Having someone near to their own age, and who has had the same experiences is very helpful.  Our Mentors help with keeping our youth on the right road to graduating from high school, getting a driver’s license, and enrolling in internship programs.  We take pride in ensuring that regardless of the location, our youth get the best possible experience and knowledge that we can provide.
