  • How does Pete’s Pals work?
    A 6th to 9th-grade student can sign up by going to, clicking on the Pete’s Pals header, and clicking on ‘Become a Pal.’ From there, a mentee will fill out a quick questionnaire form, and an email will be sent with additional information and steps to a parent/guardian once we find a mentor to pair with. Once paired, meetings with the student-athlete and pal will be conducted at least once a week for at least 30 minutes. These meetings include but aren’t limited to, crafts and activities, setting goals and planning for the future, having meaningful discussions, or just having fun.
  • Who can participate in Pete’s Pals?
    Currently, Pete’s Pals is reserved for 9th-grade students from Stillwater Junior High School.
  • How are mentees and mentors matched?
    Mentees and mentors are matched by gender (male with male, female with female) and by common interests, hobbies, and career aspirations.
  • What are the goals of Pete’s Pals?
    Pete’s Pals aims to create a lasting impact within our community by equipping teenagers with essential life skills and values. We believe everyone needs a positive role model to provide guidance and wisdom. We strive to help all mentees reach their full potential and encourage them to graduate from high school and pursue post-secondary education.
  • What is the time commitment for Pals?
    We expect pairings to meet for at least 30 minutes to an hour every week.
  • Is there a cost to participate in Pete’s Pals?
    No, Pete’s Pals is an entirely free program.
  • What happens if the mentorship isn’t working out?
    If a mentorship is not meeting the mentee's needs, our team will try to resolve the issue by working with both the mentee and the mentor. The next step would be to assign a new mentor to the mentee, but the Pete’s Pals team does not want to break up relationships. All other options will be exhausted before pairing a mentee with a new mentor.
