Become a Wonder Guide for Youth in Foster Care

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Stanford Sierra Youth & Families

Wonder is a mentoring program matching children living in foster care, one-to-one, with caring, consistent adults. The mentors are trained to listen, support, and guide each child through fun, age-appropriate experiences in music, the arts, sports, volunteer service, dining out, and nature. The children enrolled in the program are called "Explorers" and the adults who volunteer and serve as mentors are called "Guides." Together, they participate in a journey of fun and exploration filled with Wonder Moments. A Wonder Guide may be the most consistent adult a child in care has in their lives.

We are currently in need of more male mentors of color to serve our current youth population!
