Have you ever waited for someone? Did you feel the tension in your gut, the anxiousness and shaky hope that you wouldn't be let down? If so, did you wait for more than a month? More than a year?
James, a 9-year-old from Brainerd, has been waiting for a Kinship mentor for over a year and a half!
Are you wondering how this can be?
Well, it's certainly not because of James. He is a thoughtful kid who looks out for his siblings and has a great sense of humor. There aren't any pets at home, but he likes to be around them. His all-time favorite place to eat is McDonalds.
Do you like camping, swimming, fishing and enjoying nature? Would you be willing to play board games, go to a baseball game or try model building?
These are James' dreams and he is waiting for you. Consider being his mentor and bring an end to his long wait.
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.
