Mission Statement

Kids 'n Kinship is a youth mentoring program in Dakota County for youth ages 5-16 in need of a positive role model. Through their Kinship relationship youth experience a variety of activities and increase their self-esteem.


Kids 'n Kinship connects volunteers with children and youth who need a positive role model, supports the volunteer/child relationship as they have fun together, and provides for safe and successful mentoring. Volunteers (individual adults, couples or families) spend 1-4 hours a week with a child, doing low-cost but fun activities such as fishing, playing catch, gardening, crafts, or playing board games.
