Central Oregon Partnerships for Youth program, a project of the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office, connects appropriate and safe adults as mentors for kids dealing with an incarcerated parent. After initial training and background checks, volunteers are matched with a child who shares similar interests and activities and commits to spending a few hours a week together for a minimum of one year. This time is often spent going to community events, working on homework, attending art programs, participating in sports, or simply hanging out and talking.
