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.

- 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

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.
