Get involved

**It is our goal to maintain the safety of each and every child we serve. With that in mind, Melanin and Honey requires that each volunteering mentor participate in a self-funded background check.


  • Mentors will be accepted contingent upon clear results of the background check. Background checks will include any sex offender crimes.

  • There is a one-time processing fee of $9.50, collected in the form of check, or Money Order made payable to "Melanin and Honey."

  • Melanin and Honey will order the background check upon receipt of the signed release form and payment; conducted by HireRight employment screening services. 

  • Mentors will be accepted and notified upon clearance.
