Child in Need: Male role model sought for Kevin

Kevin, a 5 year old in Baxter, is our featured child waiting for a mentor this week.

With tee-ball as his favorite, Kevin loves all sports. He is also interested in learning to fixing things. When asked what he would like to fix he said “houses.”

Kevin also enjoys video games, bike riding and swimming. He is in Pre-K and loves his school. He’s having a little difficulty making friends but loves helping his teachers.

Kevin lives with his grandma and a house full of girls. A positive male role model who would do guy things with him would make a real difference in this little boy’s future.

Do you have a couple hours a week you could throw a ball or teach Kevin about tools? We would love to talk to you about him or about any of our other kids who are waiting for a Kinship Partners mentor.

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.
