MentorKids Kentucky is able to immediately come alongside youth who have been accepted into our one-to-one mentoring program. This allows for the opportunity to begin building a foundation of trust with the youth who attend Thursday nights in preparation for when a mentor becomes available to them.
The STAR Program has been designed to benefit both the youth waiting for a mentor as well as those youth already matched who may need additional support.
By partnering with the Daviess County National Honor Society and other community volunteers, MentorKids Kentucky is able to provide the supports necessary to be successful in our Six Areas of Focus: Academic Excellence, Character Building, Relational Skills, Tobacco Prevention, Spiritual Growth, and Life Skills.
When youth are dropped off at MentorKids from 4-6PM on Thursdays that school is in session, the legal guardians know for certain that:
1. They will be safe
2. They will be fed dinner
3. Their homework will be completed
4. They will be provided opportunities for growth
5. They will have a blast!
