What Community Mentors Have to Say
Adelaide & Willa
"Being involved in a mentoring relationship with my mentee has been a great privilege for me. We build on each other’s ideas and I try to encourage her healthy and intelligent curiosity about the world.”
- Adelaide, mentor since 2017
Karl & Jack
"The roar of the fire, the boiling of the sap, the hard work and quiet conversations make for a great time at the sugarhouse with my friend and mentee."
- Karl, mentor since 2014
Pam & Harlee
"Spending time with my mentee, and seeing the world through a child’s eyes, makes everything right in the world.”
- Pam, mentor since 2015
Ginny & Breona
"My mentee and I feel quite lucky to have each other. I enjoy choosing activities that I loved doing with my own children when they were young, and my mentee loves to introduce me to her favorites. I always look forward to our time together."
-Ginny, mentor since 2016
Cam & Chase
"Mentoring is a great way to make a difference, big and/or small, in a child's life. The amount of time you volunteer is up to you, and there is terrific support from the staff."
- Cam Kelly-Kinniburgh, Mentor since 2015
Betty & Natasha
"Such fun we had, often low key hanging out, cooking, walking, talking, kayaking. I have so many great memories and a great friend. Mentoring is so fulfilling and makes a difference in at least two lives, with rippling effects beyond." -Betty 2015
