Is your child in need of extra support that a caring adult can provide?
Does your child need a boost in self-esteem?
Does your child need another trusting and caring adult in their life?
The Mentor does not replace parents/guardians or their role or authority in a child's life. The Mentor is a special, supportive person in their lives. Studies have shown many parents experience an improved relationship with their child because they were given a mentor.
We ask for a one-year commitment
All mentors go through extensive background checks and training before they are matched
Parents/guardians have a voice in the matching process
