Purpose of Mentoring

The purpose of mentoring is to introduce an additional caring adult into the life of each child who can talk to them on a personal level and spend relational time with them. In a mentoring relationship, the mentor and the child spend time together for at least one hour each week. During their weekly time together, they may focus on schoolwork, reading, talking, or just spending time together – similar to a big brother, big sister relationship. 

Enrollment Requirements

  • Both the child and volunteer mentor are asked to make a one year commitment to the match, and commit to seeing each other for one hour a week.
  • Children must be between 6-18 years of age
  • Review of the Caregiver's Choice brochure, and written consent from the child's legal guardian/caretaker
