Mentor Application

Thank you for applying to be a mentor.

You have come to this site either because of our partnership with KARK 4 News and Fox16 News through the Victory Over Violence campaign or you have been invited by one of our many partners in the community. Your application will be processed and given to our partnering agencies for them to call you and explain their needs and programs to you. We are endeavoring to streamline the application process and your information will be shared with our partnering agencies. Those agencies will contact you so you can interview them about their needs. Once you have chosen an agency, you will be contacted by that agency about having a background check and only that agency will have your personal information. If you have any questions, or no agency has contacted you, please contact Robert H. Holt at 501-516-1602 or email him at
