  • Be a minimum of 18 years of age;
  • Be sound in body and of good health.
  • Be of good moral character and have not been convicted of any criminal offense or offense that reflects negatively on the participant’s moral character.

Program participants will meet with law enforcement professionals and community partners for approximately two hours each week over the course of five weeks.  If you feel that the Gloucester County Diversity Recruitment Initiative Mentoring Program would be a benefit to you and would like to participate, please email Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office Community Relations Specialist Shannon Eden at seden@co.gloucester.nj.us to express your interest.  The mentoring program is limited to 25 participants and the second session is scheduled to commence on Wednesday, April 19, 2017.
