Mentoring 4 Kids is a Free, Non-Sectarian Program
The Mentoring 4 Kids Program provides same gender role models for a child who have lost a significant care-giver through death or divorce. This is a free, non-sectarian program for children and teens between 6-14 years that helps fill a void in the child’s life and strengthens the family. M4K has strengthened and enriched the lives of children and inspired brighter futures for decades!
We will match your child with a thoroughly screened and trained mentor who will provide guidance, support and friendship. They will share in a wide range of community-based activities with your child, and have the opportunity to attend M4K quarterly outings to meet the other program participants while enjoying a day of fun and recreation, bowling, playing mini-golf, painting pottery or visiting Fun Depot.
