Where does mentoring take place?
The mentoring takes place on-site at Kids Can Community Center on 48th & Q Street anytime from 4:30 PM to 6:00 PM.


*Due to COVID restrictions Kids Can students have not had our mentoring program between 2020-Fall 2023, we are thrilled to be able to return mentoring to our young people. Connecting young people with caring adults can help combat challenges of isolation, social and emotional health, and academic achievement.
