Our children need our help! Over the past 2-3 years, we have seen an increase in the number of children and youth who have experienced significant trauma; this trauma affects every area of their lives and must be addressed to ensure healthy development continues.

NOW more than ever, our children need the caring, ongoing, purposeful interaction of an adult. This is the definition of mentoring. “Research shows that the strongest protective factor linked with resilience to childhood trauma is the reliable presence of a sensitive, nurturing, and responsive adult,” (childtrends.org).  Our Mentoring and Social Emotional Learning programs will not only provide the support that these children need, it will also provide a protective factor that will encourage growth and skill development in the core competencies of SEL – self-awareness, social awareness, responsible decision making, self-management and self-esteem.

Our goal is to ensure that every child in our state that wants or needs a mentor can have one!
 
When you make a difference in the life of a child you will not only impact their families and their communities, your support can inspire them to change the world.
