  • mentor
  • Description: This track is for those who are interested in being a stable adult in a child’s life but aren’t in a place to be their guardian or parent.

You have the opportunity to play a stable, guiding role in the life of a child who sees a lot of change. You will learn more about the importance of supporting a child in care and opportunities to mentor, provide short-term housing, and to be there for a child who could use a friend.

This track is for folks who want to be involved in caring for children in foster care, but aren’t in the place to play a stable role in a child’s life. Learn about the valuable role you can play as a babysitter, support role for a family, or a volunteer for the organizations who work with children in foster care.
