Coconino Online Probation Education (COPE) is looking for volunteer mentors, according to County Supervisor Lena Fowler.

Mentees in the program are adults that are currently on Coconino County or Navajo Nation probation.

COPE mentors offer support by helping to identify and support internal motivation for those seeking to change their life around. The group – a virtual mentoring program – serves as a positive link to the community.

No previous mentoring experience is necessary. Training is provided for qualified volunteers.

COPE is a partnership between the Coconino County Adult Probation Department and Sunnyside Neighborhood Association; it mentors people on probation in Flagstaff, Page, Tuba City and Williams.

All mentees are referred to COPE by probation officers. In addition to mentor matching and mentor training, other services provided by COPE include online Moral Recognition Therapy (MRT) and other online cognitive-behavioral therapy classes.

COPE also offers technology for probation clients.

Qualification for mentors include a one-year commitment with a mentee, two hours a week (and reliable internet access) and experience or knowledge of probation or parole.
