Description

Friends for Youth provides youth with an engaged and supportive relationship with a caring adult mentor. Friends for Youth follows best practices of mentoring through quality volunteer training, matching, close supervision and personalized case management.

One-to-one matches are strengthened through cultural, recreational, and educational activities.
