Waiting for a Mentor: Boy wants to hunt, play sports

Evan is 11 years old and, for him, life consists of going to school, wrestling with his two brothers or sprawling around the TV to compete in the latest video game.

Evan is 11 years old and, for him, life consists of going to school, wrestling with his two brothers or sprawling around the TV to compete in the latest video game.

Grandma is in charge of these three and she lovingly herds them through the days with love and patience.

But Evan wants to do "guy things," like learning to hunt or drive a four-wheeler, or maybe even going on a snowmobile. He is interested in sports, wonders what it would be like to ride a horse and pretty much likes anything that's done outdoors.

Is there room on your snowmobile for a kid? Would you be willing to cut an extra hole in the ice and bring Evan fishing? How about picking him up on the way to a Warriors game?

Be Evan's mentor. With just a couple hours a week you can affect his life and open up his world. It just may be the most important thing you do this year.
