Youth Villages seeks caring adults to be kids’ mentors

Youth Villages logoDuring National Mentoring Month in January, Youth Villages is looking for more caring adults to serve as friends and role models to children with emotional and behavioral problems.

Mentors commit to spending four to six hours per month with a child for six months. Mentors must be at least 21 years old, pass a background check and complete an initial training session.
