Connections A Program of The Children's Village

Establish a long-term one-on-one relationship with a youth who is in need of a role model, friend and caring adult. Share your world with a youngster by taking him to a baseball game, bringing him to a family cookout, helping him write a poem or taking him fishing for the first time. You might encourage him to aim for college, introduce him to the world of work or listen to his dreams, his hopes and his fears. Minimum time requirement is ten hours per month with a commitment of one year.

The Mentoring Program is ideal if you are over the age of 24. You would be matched with youth between the ages of 15 and 24.
