Sisters looking for a mentor

Kinship Partners is a non-profit youth mentoring organization serving families in Crow Wing and southern Cass counties by providing positive role models to youth from ages 5 to 14.

Here are two girls from Brainerd who are waiting for partners.

Who: Sisters 11-year old Cassie and 9-year old Nikki

Where: Brainerd

Interests: Cassie likes science, reading, animals, playing outside, and playing board games; Nikki likes math, computer lab, art, swimming, bike riding and playing games.

Personality Traits: Cassie is out-going, friendly, and well-mannered; Nikki is active, fun-loving, and talkative.

Current number of children waiting for partners: 28 boys; 19 girls

Cassie and Nikki are sisters who live with their father. Although their mother lives out of the area, they see her every other weekend. These girls would each benefit from having a mentor who would be their friend and show them that someone outside their family cares about them.
