4-H Mentoring is a program for youth and their families. Volunteer mentors are also a part of the program and help the youth with academics and socially – they give them a good role model and a big brother/sister.
I have had the great opportunity to be a part of this program since 2008. This program continually amazes me. The families in this program are ones who truly want to improve their family relations and the mentors are one-of-a-kind.
4-H Mentoring serves youth between the ages of 10-14 years. Mentors are at least 18 years old.
Each month, 4-H Mentoring hosts two activities – one for the families and mentors and one just for the youth in the program and their mentors. There is also an after-school club for each youth to attend that teaches various skills and subjects. Every activity within this program is free to registered families and mentors.
If you are a parent/guardian who is looking for a fun program for your family to be involved in or if you are an adult who is looking for a great service opportunity, 4-H Mentoring is it! I am definitely looking forward to when my children are older and can participate in this program!
