MENTORING

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

An adult volunteer mentors a child between the ages of 6 and 16, spending one-on-one time together twice a month. Through activities like playing ball, catching up over lunch and going to the park, life-changing friendships are built. Having the friendship and support of a mentor opens a child’s eyes to new possibilities.
