Kids 'n Kinship's mentoring of youth is proven to reduce isolation, improve positive relationships with adults and reduce at- risk behaviors

Kids ‘n Kinship's mentoring program provides friendships to children and youth ages 5-16 in need of an additional positive adult role model.

Through their Kinship relationship children:

  • receive positive attention and guidance
  • experience a variety of enriching activities and
  • are helped to develop the sense of self-worth that is essential to successful functioning

Throughout a mentor relationship, the volunteer plans and carries out activities with the child, one on one in the community. Volunteers are individuals, couples and families. Some examples of typical activities are: hiking, attending sporting or cultural events, leaning a new skill or hobby, or just hanging out together.

Mentors meet with the child at school once a week and then get together during school breaks for community activities.
