Did you know that 9 million kids across the US are growing up without a good adult role model to help them? And many of them are right here in Idaho!
Our youth mentor program fosters the growth and development of youth, ages 9-17. We match adults of all ages with young people to provide guidance, encouragement, and culturally appropriate learning opportunities. Mentoring adults share their knowledge and experience and provide a positive adult role model for our youth, to help them successfully navigate their tween and teen years.
Our mentors promote positive youth behaviors such as improved attendance at school or involvement in community activities to strengthen gang resistance skills, school achievement and development of healthy relationships. We work with youth to develop a positive sense of self and community.
