OVC Mentoring

Could something as simple as mentoring a child really change things? The answer is yes. For the child in foster care, he needs a consistent adult to be on his team. For the girl growing up in generational poverty, she needs to know an adult not stuck in the same cycle. For the teenager at risk of being trafficked, she needs a healthy relationship that tells her she has worth. Children and youth in our communities are living at-risk. They are vulnerable, and they need someone like you now so that they do not become a statistic later.

Organizations like Mentor Upstate and Miracle Hill are working in local schools and throughout our community to connect these under-resourced children to mentors.

Mentor through the local school system by committing to lunch once a week with an elementary, middle, or high school student.

Mentor youth that live in group homes in the department of social services care. Mentors are men and women who can commit at least twice per month to the youth (ages 11-20), by taking them off campus for fun or educational activities.
