Waiting for a Mentor: Give the gift of mentoring to 9-year-old girl

"Lions and tigers and bears...Oh, my!"

OK, well not quite, but birds, rabbits, dogs, hedgehogs and—wait for it—brothers! This is life for 9-year-old Nikki! She and her family love animals, but having such a busy household leaves Nikki wanting some time to herself. She would love to have a mentor, and thinks finding a female mentor with a daughter would be a perfect fit!

Nikki enjoys drawing, reading, singing and riding a bike. She enjoys school, but at times she feels she is not smart enough. She would like a mentor to help her learn how to read better and help her with her math.

Nikki is a sweet and loving girl who could use a female role model to get her away from all the boys and help guide her into becoming a confident young lady. Could you be the one who could give this gift to Nikki?

With offices in Brainerd, Pequot Lakes, Crosby, and Staples, Kinship Partners serves area families by providing positive role models to youth from the ages of 5 to 14. Mentors can be individuals, couples or families.
