Mentors are needed in Dakota County!

Make a meaningful difference in the life of a child or teen!

Kids 'n Kinship is a youth mentoring program in Dakota County enabling individuals (21+), couples, and families to make a positive difference in the life of a youth (age 5-16). As a volunteer community-based mentor you would get together with your matched mentee for an hour or two each week participating in low cost or no cost activities like biking, playing catch, playing board games, drawing or crafts, going to the park, eating dinner together, and visiting the library. The schedule is super-flexible and we provide training, free and reduced passes to area attractions, and ongoing support. Join us in building a stronger community through youth mentoring.

"My son has never been one to look to the future but he is now." - Parent of a mentee

"Mentoring has been a blast; I don't know why I waited so long to get involved!" - Mentor
