Mentoring is the single most effective way to positively impact a child’s life. The Youth Mentoring Program at The Bridge pairs adult volunteer mentors with youth one-on-one and facilitiates monthly actvities for the larger group to enjoy together. We currently have a list of children waiting to be matched with a fun, caring adult. The Bridge provides all the support you need to be a successful role model in a child’s life. Please join us if you can give two hours a week of your time. Children in the program are ages 7 and older (through high school).
For more information on becoming a mentor, contact Liz Dobrzynski at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 847-485-3061.
