Child in Need: Ian is waiting for a mentor

Ian waiting for a mentor

Ian is a 5-year-old from the Baxter area waiting for a mentor. He is usually a happy, active little guy but can have a temper at times. He can act out for attention and is best matched with a mentor who is comfortable setting boundaries.

Ian is interested in learning more about snowmobiling, four wheeling, auto racing and boating. He enjoys spending time outside and loves all sports. He also likes arts, crafts and baking. Ian would also be a great assistant to your simple handy man projects.

Are you the person to share a few hours a week with Ian, or someone like him, doing day-to-day activities and tasks?
