Mentor-(A program of New Mexico Child Advocacy Networks)
Volunteers are matched and well trained with young people between the ages of 14-21 who have either aged out of foster care or are at-risk of doing so.
Every day in New Mexico there are approximately 200 young people who are likely to “age out” of the foster care system. These young people were taken into foster care and never reunified with family or found an alternative home. At age 18 they leave the system without having had the experiences and opportunities necessary to develop self-advocacy skills, to build positive peer networks and to access the family and community supports all young people need to achieve their dreams and become successful adults.
We provide our mentors and mentees with 24 hour crisis support, on-going training, monthly group events and much more. You won’t be in it alone!
