The need for mentorship is always high in the community. There are currently over 35 children at Kids ‘n Kinship who are waiting to be matched with a caring, adult mentor.

Most of the children on our waitlist are boys who are seeking a positive male role model.

The volunteer information sessions are open to individuals, couples, and families who are at least 21 years or older and who have a desire to be a role model to a child.
