To help kids expand their horizons, realize their potential and enrich their lives through caring adult mentors.
You have the power to change a child's future. Research points to the powerful, positive, lasting impact a Mentor can play in a child's life. Many children today have a need for positive adult relationships in their lives. At one time, our children were surrounded by caring adults - parents, grandparents, neighbors - and had regular one-on-one activities and conversations with them. For many reasons, our times and culture have changed and many children today have very little of this healthy, happy kind of time with special adults in their lives. Children learn, develop, and thrive through such interactions. Become a Sidekick and you will see how just a few hours a month with a child can inspire new confidence in a “Small” and help bridge the gaps between the inexperienced and wise, and the young and young-at-heart.
