Mentoring for kids with an incarcerated parent
Approximately 10 million of our nation's children have experienced parental incarceration at one point of their lives. We see these students, and we want to fill the gap for them! Students are recommended to our program by school officials, extended family members or even the incarcerated parents. We are diligent in matching each student with a mentor that has been certified and trained in dealing with these special circumstances. Mentors must meet with their mentee at least once a week for a year long commitment. The progress of each pair will be monitored by program directors and support staff. Would you be interested in making a difference in these kid's lives?
