Giving A Boost To Youth
Kids deserve the opportunity for healthy social, physical, intellectual and spiritual development. Yet many young people in our community are missing the positive, sustained adult relationships they need to thrive. Kinship encourages couples, families as well as individuals to spend quality time with boys and girls ages 5 to 18. Mentoring doesn’t have to be complicated; it can be as easy as spending an afternoon shopping or walking around a lake. Activities could include sharing hobbies/interests, playing games, sports, cooking, fishing or eating pizza. In addition, the Kinship staff plans a variety of activities throughout the year for mentors and mentees to share.
January is National Mentoring Month, and Kinship of Greater Minneapolis is always looking for additional mentors to match with the more than 200 youth on our waiting list. Become a Kinship mentor and be a positive influence on a child or young adult.
