Youth Mentorship

Each One Lead One (EOLO)

Anamon’s Foundation EOLO is a mentorship program providing direct and personalized guidance for the holistic development of struggling youth in underserved communities of the pacific northwest. The program aims at transforming struggling youth into respectable citizens of their communities, by guiding and providing them with the resources needed for easier transition from childhood to adulthood.


Each youth is assigned one personal mentor to enable the development of friendships based on trust and mutual respect. Factors such as personality, temperament, interests, ambitions, career paths, cultural background, community, etc. are considered in choosing a mentor for a child.


Our mentors form meaningful long-term relationships with our youth which persists until the child gets his/her first job after college. Our mentors do not only offer advice for youth, they also coordinates all sorts of support/assistance for them when needed to ensure consistent access to resources pertinent to their development into adulthood. 


Each youth has a direct remote access to his/her personal mentor 24/7 just like a child would have with a parent/guardian. Anamon Foundation provides a platform which enables monitored connection between a child and mentor at all times. A child is able to text, call, or email a mentor at any time to just talk, discuss a problem, seek advice, ask for help, or just give an update.

Youth Mentees

EOLO focuses on struggling youth from underserved and marginalized communities in school, at home, in shelters, and unhoused. Our mentees range from Sixth(6th) graders to college graduates seeking employment. 


The program also provides an opportunity for respectable adults to give back to their communities by taking the hand of struggling youth and guiding them in traversing the intricacies of childhood through adolescence to adulthood.


EOLO mentors are experienced reputable adults who are passionate about imparting valuable attitudes, knowledge and skills into the next generation. Our mentors are taken through consistent professional mentorship training to equip them with the most updated knowledge and skills needed to discharge their mentorship duties safely and effectively in compliance with laws and regulations.


A mentor dedicates a minimum of 8 intentional hours per month to help the assigned youth. A mentor uses this time to check up on the youth, chit-chat, seek update on previously discussed subjects, discuss new challenges and offer advice, seek feedback on the child from parent/guardian, request for extra support from EOLO for the youth, provide an update on the youth to the EOLO Youth Counselor.


Support provided by our mentors to our youth include, depending on the age of the assigned youth, social life issues, education, health and wellness, financial advice, career choice making, resume writing and job search, and general life issues.

Professional Mentors support and empower youth by:

  • Creating connections – with other youth who share their interests or to resources in their own communities.
  • Exploring their interest and sharing in new experiences, through trips to museums, visiting the library or taking an art class.
  • Connecting youth to opportunities, like internships, scholarships and informational interviews.
  • Helping a child identify coping skills, regulate emotions and find constructive outlets for stress and frustration.
  • Being a consistent adult in a child’s life as they move from placement to placement in the foster care system.



  • Help the youth to identify their purpose in life.
  • Help the youth to design strategies that will help them achieve their purpose.
  • Equip the youth with decision-making and problem-solving skills
  • Provide the youth with friendships built on trust that they can always rely on.
  • Promote respect and appreciation of different cultures and encourage peaceful co-existence among the youth within their communities and with all races.
  • Promote mental awareness and mindful living.
  • Promote arts, culture and creativity among the youth
