The Viscardi Center’s new Mentoring Initiative program is designed for students, ages 11-17 with a disability or those considered "at-risk", and assists youth in realizing their potential and achieving their personal and educational goals. By creating a meaningful relationship, based on trust and open communication, mentors help young people gain a sense of belonging, build self-confidence and learn new skills and passions.
