Mentor a Child

Mentor A Child

Mentor a young adult and change a life. Through our mentorship program, young adults aging out of foster care are teamed with a supportive community volunteer to help them transition into adulthood and independency. Serving as a mentor is about sharing time and knowledge and giving of yourself. Helping a child realize their potential will allow them to follow their dreams and believe that THEY CAN DO IT!
