Waiting for a Mentor: 6-year-old wants to be policeman, fireman
How often have you read the Waiting for a Mentor articles and thought you should give Kinship Partners a call, but something always holds you back from actually picking up the phone?
Maybe you ask yourself questions like: Do I have enough time? Am I young enough to keep up with the kids? What do I really have to offer? How much will it cost?
Here are some things that you can give a child who is in need of a friend and it won’t cost much or take a get deal of time: A listening ear, unconditional love, smiles, laughter, shared happiness, conversation, affirmation, joy, understanding, life skills, knowledge and hope, to name a few.
Meet John, a 6-year-old boy from Brainerd who wants to be a policeman or a fireman when he grows up. He is very attentive and has a happy disposition. John has been waiting for a Kinship Partners mentor since May 2013.
There are currently 23 children waiting for a Kinship Partners mentor. These are incredible kids, loaded with promise and potential, living in our towns and desiring to be part of your world. Be a mentor. Influence a life.
