Bethany Christian Services is currently recruiting mentors for its three mentoring programs. Male mentors are especially needed! Mentoring Programs Domestic Foster Care - serves youth ages 5-16 who are currently in foster care. Youth Services - serves youth ages 14-21 who are aging out of foster care and low-income young adults ages 18-24 who have dropped out of high school. Refugee Foster Care - serves youth ages 14-21 who are a refugee youth in foster care. We are dedicated to finding mentors for these youth in order to provide a consistent adult who will listen, encourage, and be a friend. Sharing interests, helping with homework, giving advice and really just "being there" will make all the difference in the world to these youth. Extend a hand...become a mentor!
