Mentoring at MFC is equipping and empowering the children in our program to be prepared for adult living and to reach their fullest potential. Mentors with MFC commit to meeting with one youth once a month for one year.
We all need at least one safe, caring adult in our life! Youth need to be seen, heard, and encouraged to try new things. Mentors walk alongside youth as they navigate through life’s challenges, providing wisdom, advice, encouragement, and community. The investment of a caring adult greatly increases the chances that a child will be successful. This benefits not just the youth but also supports that child's family as a whole.
Mentors are advocates, teachers, guides, role models, valued friends, and available resources. A mentor is a safe, caring adult who is willing to spend time with, listen to, and encourage a youth in the Michiana area. Anyone who is willing to spend time with, listen to, and love a youth would make an excellent mentor!
