Every youth in our program can benefit from having a mentor—a safe, stable, consistent adult in their life to encourage, guide, and believe in them. Becoming a mentor to an older youth in foster care requires participating in a short training program and agreeing to a background check and screening process. Mentoring a youth means committing to call and visit the youth on a regular basis and to be a part of their life. Many youth we serve experience the disappointment and heartache of losing touch with family members, siblings, foster care families, and friends, so consistency and dependability are essential.
