Mentoring Opportunity:

Urgent Need! The King Street Center Mentoring program seeks mentors ready & able to build a friendship, broaden horizons and show commitment to an individual child. Each mentor is matched with an elementary or middle school student who is enrolled at King Street Center and is asked to spend a few hours together out in the community every week.

Typical adventures include a visit to a playground, conversation over hot chocolate, apple picking, baking, local hikes, attending a sporting event/concert together, visiting the library, or pursuing other shared interests. This is a one-year (minimum) commitment, year-round (must be 22 years +). Our average mentoring relationship lasts nearly 4 years.
