About

Children of prisoners, ages 4 - 15 need mentors.

Youth and children are in dire need of mentors for guidance and nurturing to help stop the cycle of incarceration in their families.

Without a caring adult, mentor and role model, in their lives, these children are five times more likely to go to prison.

Why Mentor?

  • Assist youth in making positive choices,
  • Explore careers and higher education,
  • Improve youth's grades,
  • Assist youth's in setting goals for the future,
  • See new things and places, and have fun!
  • Be a positive role model and friend
  • Mentoring boys and girls is a wonderful opportunity to give back to the community

What Can you Do?

  • Connect with a deserving child to help them see their potential,
  • Be a role model and friend,
  • Take part in a community to raise the children, where we each have a role.

How does it work?

  • Mentors spend minimum of 8 hours per month together
  • Focus on schoolwork
  • Go to movies
  • Sporting events or museums
  • Simply talk and be a trusted friend

As a mentor, you have the opportunity to help a child see a whole new world and way of life.
