How long will my child be able to participate?
To start, your child will be matched with an adult mentor for a minimum of 6 months. The match can continue as long as both the mentor and child desire.
How do I know this program is safe for my child?
Each adult volunteer is screened through the following steps:
- a criminal and driving background check
- three personal references are contacted
- case managers complete an extensive application, office visit and a home visit
Is there a cost for my child to participate?
There is no cost to you to have your child participate in the program.
Do I get to choose my child’s mentor?
The team at Children’s Mentoring Connection will take the information learned in the application process with your family to determine the best possible match between a volunteer and child. You will be able to have regular contact with your case manager, allowing the opportunity for you to share any questions or concerns that may come up throughout the match.
