Mentor Duluth held a creative event to recruit volunteers on Saturday.

"Try Something New" at Fitger's allowed visitors to try things they'd never done before at multiple stations throughout the building.

Mentor Superior Coordinator Rebecca Haavik said the goal is to recruit mentors for kids in Duluth and Superior.

"We have tons of activities for kids and adults to try new things," she said. "We have tattoos, a Zumba class going on in the Red Star, cookie decorating, you can carve a bar of soap. And we're just spreading the word about the new things kids get to do by being part of Mentor Duluth, and then also encouraging adults to volunteer as mentors."

Haavik said there are 300 mentors currently working with young people through the program, but 280 kids are still on the waiting list.
