Wonder Mentoring Program
Wonder is a mentoring program matching children living in foster care, one-to-one, with caring, consistent adults. The mentors are trained to listen, support, and guide each child through fun, age-appropriate experiences in music, the arts, sports, volunteer service, dining out, and nature. The children enrolled in the program are called “Explorers” and the adults who volunteer and serve as mentors are called “Guides.” Together, they participate in a journey of fun and exploration filled with Wonder Moments. A Wonder Guide may be the most consistent adult a child in care has in their lives. There is a minimum one year commitment to become a Guide.
“What I like best about my guide is how supportive she is and how much of an impact she has made. She motivates me and helps me see the better side to any situation. She has helped me succeed and be motivated in school.”
