The Child Safe Michigan Community-Based Mentoring Program is the only successful program in the state of Michigan 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, and life skills development and 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.
