Our one-on-one mentor program is a weekly, individualized program serving children in grades K-12. The mentors spend a minimum of one hour per week with their student, engaging in activities they mutually enjoy while encouraging the student in their academic, social, and personal endeavors. From hiking, bowling, playing board games, to traveling and exploring caves, arts and crafts, you name it... they have been doing it! These partnerships are definitely loving all the fun!
"Girl Talk” is our nine-week program designed for girls in the fifth and sixth grades. Topics covered include relationships with peers, friendships, family, diversity, body image, self-esteem, and being a girl. The purpose of the program is to promote youth, family, and community growth and resilience by offering programs that create, restore, and sustain healthy relationships. Girl Talk sessions are held from October through December and again from February through April. There are currently 23 girls enrolled in the February to April session. These girls are very talkative and enjoy sharing their stories. It is now also held in North Lake and Paisley.
