ASTRO Mentorships are offered in two ways: Recreational Mentoring and Vocational Mentoring.
Recreational Mentoring is for people who just want to have fun! Matches are made based on likes and interests. A recreational mentor is tasked with being a role model for their match, and encouraging them to be active and try new things. There is a focus on community engagement and safety in every activity the pair is involved in.
Vocational Mentoring is for people with little or no work experience who want to learn job skills. A vocational mentor is tasked with helping their match to identify jobs that interest them and help them to prepare to fulfill the job requirements for that position. Ultimately, competitive integrated employment is the desired outcome.
At ASTRO a recreational mentor is someone that brings out the best in you. We carefully interview and screen our mentors and proteges to ensure that a proper match is made. Most of our mentors are people who have volunteered or worked with us in the past and made a connection to someone they met. Check out our quarterly schedule and join us at an event to take your first step towards becoming a part of ASTRO Mentorships:
Mentor pairs spend time together doing the things they love including hiking, fishing, bowling, rock climbing, and paddle boarding. We offer both paid and volunteer positions.

At ASTRO we cater to the unique needs of the individual by creating an approach to therapy that is based around recreational activities that interest and engage our clients. Our programs are designed to enhance Social Emotional Learning (SEL) in a therapeutic and supportive environment. By creating a setting that makes the individual feel comfortable and confident, we teach, model, and socially coach participants to help them find their own path towards emotional regulation, building and maintaining healthy relationships, and problem solving.
