A push to March into Mentoring

As we begin a new month, a push to March into Mentoring. Mentor North is asking community members to nominate caring adults to mentor Twin Ports youth.

There are 56 kids on the waiting list. And having that special connection with an adult, can make all the difference.

It’s a one year commitment, but can end up being longer.

The Duluth program advocate of Mentor North, Nicki Sibert tells WDIO, “We’re really, really intentional about how we match our people. So, if the kid’s on the waitlist, you’re not just going to get the next kid in line. You’re going to get a kid that you match with, and that’s why we see it being mutually beneficial for both the kid and the adult.”

Mentor North tries to match mentors with kids based on their personalities and shared common interested.

You have to commit to spending at least 4 hours a month. Mentor North is hoping to recruit 100 mentors.

More information on becoming a mentor can be found on the organization’s website.
