Children’s Mentoring Connection’s success depends on the life-changing relationships built through the involvement of our volunteers. Volunteers work closely with a case manager to provide mentoring resources necessary to help guide a child, 6-14 years old, toward becoming a competent, caring and confident individual.
Mentoring is as simple as a walk in the park, watching a movie, taking a bike ride, baking cookies, talking on the phone, helping with homework, sledding, hiking, and sometimes just talking over life’s issues.
Children’s Mentoring Connection offers many mentoring options designed to meet varying volunteer needs. Mentors are encouraged to meet 2-3 times a month.
