Would you like to make a difference in the life of a child? We are looking for committed and caring adults to mentor youth in foster care and youth who have transitioned out of foster care. Youth need positive role models, so if you have some time to give, please visit https://www.dfps.state.tx.us/volunteer/Opportunities/mentor.asp to find a list of the organizations in your area that mentor foster youth.

Be advised that mentoring organizations operate independently of DFPS. Volunteers must follow the application and selection process according to the volunteer requirements of the organization. Organizations may not be accepting new mentors at this time.
