The is our most recognized program which matches children 6-17 with a caring adult mentor 18 or older. Through regular outings, a relationship is developed between the mentor and the mentee that is built on trust and common interests, and is supported by our experienced case-workers. The result is a life-changing experience for both the mentor and the mentee.
