Mission Statement

The Mentoring Children of Incarcerated Parents (MCIP) Program of Yakima County aims to support children who have been affected by parental incarceration through mentoring--- a strategy proven to reduce risky behavior and encourage youth to make positive life choices that enable them to maximize their potential. By providing these children with caring mentors, the MCIP Program aims to influence young lives, help prevent inter-generational crime and incarceration, and improve prospects for the future.

Description

The MCIP Program matches youth ages 6-16 who have been affected by parental incarceration with adult mentors (ages 19+). The MCIP Program provides pre-match mentor training, ongoing support, and monthly events to volunteer mentors.
