Mentor

The mission of A Family For Every Child’s Mentor Program is to bring enthusiastic, dedicated, and caring adult members of our community and unite them with youth in foster care. Mentors help foster youth develop confidence, independence, and everyday life skills. Furthermore, mentors provide friendship, encouragement, and support foster youth through the various transitions in their lives.

Under the supervision of the Program Director, mentors will be a stable adult and a continuous source of support to a foster child. Mentors act as a positive role model, as foster youth need positive relationships with adults with whom they can learn and grow. Mentors are a source of happiness--mentors can bring a lot of joy into a child’s life.

Applicants must be at least 21 years of age, pass a background check, and provide weekly check-ins.

Applicants must be able to commit to at least one year of 10 hours per month (2.5 hours per week) of one on one time with a youth. Schedules are arranged with the youth and parent/foster parent and can be flexible.
