HOPE Youth Mentoring
Matches 6-14 year old boys and girls with mentors in a 1:1 relationship. These boys and girls are youth who could benefit from a positive role model outside of their family. They are referred to the program through local agencies, organizations and schools.
Mentors are caring adults who agree to meet with their special friend twice a month for one year. They share what they know, listen, laugh and have fun with a special boy or girl.
The HOPE Youth Mentoring Program is sponsored by Livingston County Mental Health, Department of Social Services, Livingston County Youth Bureau, and the Probation Department.
