Supportive Adults

Mentorships are a great opportunity to forge a relationship with youth and alumni of foster care in your community, while also helping them to establish roots in activities they enjoy.  Career guidance, academic preparation, and social connections are all important elements of different mentor relationships.  We encourage you to check out resources to see what types of mentor opportunities are available.  Additionally, resources are available for caregivers to provide more information on helping youth prepare for postsecondary education success.
