The Preston T. Ross, Jr. Mentoring Center was formed to inspire and promote youth and young adults to be productive members of society. We assist them by being Mentors who listen, counsel, coach, encourage, and anything else needed to positively affect their lives.
In order to carry out our vision and to be as effective as possible, we need our own facility which will house:

  • A multi-purpose room which will seat 100-125 with folding tables and chairs.

  • 2 bathrooms, 4 or 5 enclosed cubicles, and an administrative office.

  • A Commercial Kitchen for training as well as feeding the Community 1 day every week.

  • A Sewing Room that will accommodate 5-8 students per session.


There will be no charge to Mentees or Community residents for service.
We need your help.

Ways in which you can be a part in our mission:

  • “Friends Of”: make a one- time yearly gift.

  • “Partners Of”: support by sending a monthly gift

  • “Sponsors Of”: offer financial help, products, supplies, etc.
