Mentors for Teenagers in Foster Care (Virtual)

Children's Aid and Family Services, Inc.

  • 251 people are interested

In a time of social distancing, we all need connections, especially vulnerable children and teens. Our Mentor Program has gone virtual and matches adults with children ages 12-19 years old who are in need of guidance and support. In many instances, a mentor helps a child by simply being there to listen to their concerns. Most of these children have had little or no adult guidance in their lives and need someone they can rely on. It is important for these children and teenagers to have a trusting, responsible and positive influence in their lives to help build a bridge of trust and create a much-needed stable relationship.

You can be a successful mentor if you are at least 22 years old and willing to be a positive role model and consistent presence in a child’s life. We will provide you with online comprehensive training to prepare you for your role, a support group where you can ask questions and share your experiences and a stipend to help fund activities with your mentee.
