Connect with a Youth Experiencing Foster Care - Become a Mentor!

ORGANIZATION: Transformations by New Jersey Angels

New Jersey Angels believes that not everyone is called to foster or adopt, but everyone can make a difference in a child's life, and one of the ways we hope to do that is through our Dare to Dream program. Our Dare to Dream program matches mentors with youth in care aged 11-22 to navigate life's challenges together, providing advice, encouragement, and a supportive community. We believe that the simple act of telling a mentee "I believe in you," "You are special," and "You are going to do great things" can transform their journey entirely. Mentors meet both practical and emotional needs, guiding their mentees through tailored developmental milestones.

We have 2 youth in Monmouth County that are waiting to be matched with mentors in our Dare to Dream program! Reach out today to make a difference in the life of a youth experiencing foster care.

Mission Statement

"To walk alongside children, youth, and families in the foster care community by offering consistent support through intentional giving, relationship building, and mentorship."

Description

New Jersey Angels wraps community around children in the foster care system, as well as their caretakers, by offering consistent support through intentional giving, relationship building, and mentorship. We accomplish this through our Love Box Program (which matches dedicated volunteers with foster families who are in need of community support), as well as our Dare to Dream Program (which offers an opportunity to mentor an aged-out or at-risk-to-age-out foster youth ranging from 11-22 years old).
