  • 230 people are interested

Adult Volunteers Needed to Mentor Foster Children throughout San Diego County!

The County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency, Child Welfare Services is the County's child protective services agency. Our mission is to protect children and preserve families. There are over 4,000 foster children who have experienced abuse, abandonment and neglect and are unable to reside safely with their families. These children reside in relatives, foster or group homeplacements.

The Foster Youth Mentor Program was developed to help meet the multiple needs of these children. The goal is to provide foster children with caring adult role models. Mentors provide guidance, stability, friendship, and mentoring to build self-esteem, self-reliance, self-sufficiency, academic excellence, and social skills.
