The Saratoga Mentoring Program of Catholic Charities, matches caring adults with children (ages 7 - 17) from challenging circumstances. The purpose of the program is to build one-to-one relationships based on friendship, support and fun. Mentors make a profound difference in the life of a child. Matches spend time together each week doing fun activities of their choice, these may include: going for a walk or a hike, attending a community event, going bowling or any number of possibilities.

Saratoga Mentoring is a fantastic program that matches volunteers with deserving kids. While a part of Catholic Charities, mentoring itself is non-denominational. The program provides the child with opportunities to engage in activities they otherwise would not be able to because of their family situation. The program provides support for the families as well as the child. I’ve been involved for many years and have seen for myself the difference the program can make in a kids life.
