Waiting for a Mentor: Make an impact

Summer vacation is here and kids in the Brainerd area are excited to spend long days playing with friends and collapsing in bed each night, worn out and happy.

Jason is one of those boys. He lives to be outside, playing football and skateboarding and at 12 years old he has a circle of friends who enjoy this with him.

Although Jason keeps himself active, he has a dream to go to a shooting range. Is this a hobby of yours? Would you be willing to teach him this sport while making a friend?

Including a child in your life can be one of the most fulfilling things you will ever do. Mentoring is as simple as including Jason in the already scheduled events of your summer, and making an impact that will last a lifetime.

Don’t put this decision off any longer. Be a mentor and make this summer count.
