If you’ve always wanted to help foster children, but are not in a position to foster or adopt, mentoring could be the perfect way to make a difference in the life of young adults in foster care. Foster youth currently in the system, and those who age out of foster care, often times lack the independent life skills and social networks needed to be successful in their young adult life. However, a relationship with a positive male role model can help guide and encourage the young men in our homes through their foster care journey. The supportive, healthy relationships formed between mentors and mentees are both immediate and long-term and contribute to a host of benefits for both parties involved. An ideal match would be someone who can commit to attending a one time training and background screening along with spending time with the youth at least once a month and being that consistent caring adult the youth can turn to for advice and resources. Below are BIO’s for each youth seeking a mentor.
