2017 Mentor Orientation Schedule

"A Mentor is someone who allows you to see the hope inside yourself" – Oprah Winfrey

Mentoring makes a big difference

When kids enjoy a regular, positive activity with an adult over the course of a year, those kids are 46% less likely to begin using drugs, 27% less likely to begin using alcohol, and 52% less likely to skip school. This decreases drug-related suspensions, drug related crime, and the number of babies born drug-affected. Children guided by positive role models are more likely to improve their academic performance, make better decisions, have more self confidence, and a sense of belonging. Foster youth with a mentor tend to have better relationships with parents/caregivers, teachers and peers. They are also more likely to attend and graduate from college.

Become a mentor today!

Interested mentors and potential mentors may attend this training. It is for volunteers interested in helping foster kids/or at risk youth by being their mentor in the A Family For Every Child's mentor program. You should fill out the volunteer form prior to attending. Please RSVP to our mentor director. If you have any questions or RSVPs, please contact Emma Stahl.
