About

Knoxville Leadership Foundation's Mentoring Services are community-based and offer one-on-one and group mentoring opportunities! Each of our mentoring programs serves at-risk youth in our community who are in need of a caring adult mentor that will help them reach their highest potential. Studies show that youth who are engaged in a consistent and committed mentoring relationship do better in school, gain self-confidence, and are more likely to make consistent, positive healthy life choices.

We provide screened-and-trained mentors from the community to walk along side a child for one year doing fun activities that build trust, friendship, and self-confidence. Since 2004, Amachi Knoxville has matched over 600 kids with consistent and committed mentoring relationships. To become a mentor with the Knoxville Leadership Foundation, call us at (865) 524-2774 or email Kathryn Compeau at kcompeau@klf.org for more information.
