SCHOOL-BASED MENTORING PROGRAM

BECOME A MENTOR TO A CHILD ON OUR WAITING LIST

School-Based Mentoring pairs Mankato area public school students with adult mentors for lunch or other school activities once a week.

For the students, it’s an adult who’ll listen without judging, talk without preaching & take a genuine interest in how things are going. In, other words, a friend. For the mentor, it’s making a difference in a child’s life.
