We believe every child deserves someone that believes in them.
Family Service Agency's Youth Mentoring provides mentoring programs for children. They provide children facing adversity with strong, enduring, professionally-supported, one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
Youth Mentoring operates the following programs:
Children ages 5-16 are matched with adult mentors over the age of 18. Mentors spend eight hours a month with their match for a minimum of one year.
Elementary and middle school Mentees are matched with adult Mentors who are scheduled to visit their match during the child's lunch period every other week during the course of the school year.
To schedule an orientation, to enroll a child, or to become a Mentor, please email Erin Eckhardt, Community Programs Director, or call: 815-758-8616.
