Youth in foster care are facing a number of issues and mentoring is an a effective way to ease the transition and relieve some of the stressors youth are dealing with. Being a mentor to a foster youth means representing a constant and sense of familiarity in an otherwise changing environment.
The impact a mentor makes is quite significant which is why this program requires a one-year commitment where the mentor meets 2-4 times a month with the youth within the community.
Don't worry about where you will go, what activities you will do. We've got you covered! We have plenty in our MENTOR TOOLKIT to get you going and the opportunity for you and your mentee to spend time together at one of monthly outings.
