The Youth Horizons Mentoring team has been holding monthly game and movie nights since the beginning of the year. The fun evenings have provided an opportunity for matches to connect, potential mentors to get involved with the program, and kids on the Waiting List to spend time with caring adults.
Christian is a 10-year-old boy on the Waiting List. He’s been waiting for a mentor since July of this year. He attended his first game night last month, and the experience was profound.
“She said he really enjoyed himself and he has never really been a fan of going out and spending time around other people.”
Christian had spent his evening playing games with the kids and mentors. He also had the chance to get some one-on-one time playing chess with a volunteer.
If you are interested in finding out more about what it means to be a mentor, give us a call at 316-262-8293. We currently have 53 children who are waiting someone to mentor them.
