BHS yearbook adviser on paid leave

9-year-old boy seeks mentor

Brock, a 9-year-old boy from Brainerd, has been waiting for a Kinship mentor for four months and is this week’s featured Waiting for a Mentor child.

Because Brock lives in a very busy home, living with his grandmother, sisters and uncles, a mentor would be very beneficial to him.

He would like to learn more about carpentry and maybe join the Army someday. Brock enjoys camping, football, baseball, track, soccer, bike riding, reading, writing, music and caring for animals. He is an active boy and is always ready to try something new.

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.

For more information about Brock or any of the kids on our waiting list, call 218-829-4606, toll free at 877-730-5437 or visit our website at
