The Child Safe Michigan Community-Based Mentoring Program is the only successful program in the state of Michigan that is dedicated primarily to youth in foster care ages 7-23. Mentoring is a proven and effective way to combat negative experiences that youth in foster care face. This caring and consistent relationship leads to increased self-esteem, improved social skills, additional opportunities for success in life, and an improved outlook on the future for the youth. Mentors and mentees participate in activities centered-around education, career exploration, life skills development, as well as attend sporting, entertainment, and cultural events.
Fostering Success Michigan is a statewide initiative that aims to increase access and success in higher education and post-college careers for youth with experience in foster care.
