Pen Pals

Mentoring Programs

Pen-Pals is a great way to connect kids with a friend in an old fashioned, fun way. You can share who you are, what you like to do, and fun facts some might not know about yourself. The best part is that you get to create a life-changing friendship!

How does it work?

Community Based Programs-Meet 2 times a month.

Youth ages 6 –17 are matched with caring volunteers who serve as friends and mentors. Big Brothers and Big Sisters include their Littles in activities they both enjoy like ball games, playing board games or baking cookies. It costs $1,000 to support a match for 1 year and currently there are 65 children on the waiting list to be matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister.
