Waiting for a Mentor: Summer time is mentor time

School is done for the year and kids of all ages are longingly watching the weather and asking "when will the rain stop so we can go fishing?" Yes, Minnesota summer is here and so is the rain, but a lot of kids aren't wondering if the sun will come out. They are wondering if someone will come to the rescue, bring some fun into their lives and step up to be their Kinship Partner.

Elliot is a 12-year-old boy who lives in Brainerd and is wishing for just that. He lives with his grandma and is a very active kid who would also like to learn how to paddle a canoe. He loves animals, bike riding and of course fishing.

Would you like to begin making life-long memories this summer and turn them into a relationship with life-long impact? Elliot is waiting for you to show up and make it happen.

Kinship Partners serves families in Crow Wing County, southern Cass County and the Staples/Motley area by providing positive role models to youth from the ages of 5 to 14. We have offices in Brainerd, Pequot Lakes, Crosby and Staples.
