Mentors

Mentor programs pair a caring adult with a foster youth. Mentors can be an adult to talk to, someone to go places with, a support system, and a stable presence in your life. Visit the Governor's Mentoring Partnership website.

The Americorps Foster Youth Mentoring Program is a program through the community colleges that pairs college students with foster youth.

The Big Brothers and Big Sisters are caring adults who are mentors to children. Men and women from all backgrounds help guide their Little Brothers and Little Sisters toward bright futures by sharing life experiences. "Bigs" and "Littles" enjoy schoolwork, sports, recreational activities, movies, museums, and just talking together.

If you would like to find a mentor, call the
Office of the Foster Care Ombudsman
