Waiting for a Mentor: Inject some fun into your life

What did you want to grow up to be when you were 7 years old?

Henry, a boy from Merrifield, wants to be a firefighter, a policeman, a jet pilot and a ship captain. Why settle for one thing when his whole life is ahead of him?

As you would probably guess, Henry is a happy, friendly, outgoing kid. He would like a Kinship Partner mentor who wants to spend time outside biking, fishing or just hanging out.

And wouldn’t it be fun to hang out with him? Dreaming about the future and enjoying each day?

Mentoring is just that simple. Being available and being you.

Inject some fun into your life; become Henry’s mentor.
