Child in Need: Brainerd boy would benefit from one-on-one time with mentor


Brainerd boy would benefit from one-on-one time with mentor

In life we are provided with very few situations in which we are rewarded just by walking into a room. Mentoring is one of those rare situations.

Jacob is a 9-year-old boy in Brainerd who needs a mentor. Jacob would benefit from a mentor who could spend one on one time with him playing outdoor games, bike riding and help to keep him focused. He hopes to learn to swim and maybe learn a new language.

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.

Our experience has shown time and time again that your presence — just being you — has a powerful, lifelong positive impact on a child. A child’s life improves the moment you demonstrate a willingness to care.
