Students who are experiencing the incarceration of a parent face countless obstacles and barriers to success. Our program strives to empower young people through mentorship by providing them with a strong supportive adult who can offer unconditional support and guidance that is so often missing in their lives. It is truly amazing to witness the impact of just one caring adult and the difference this can make in the lives of a student. Our staff provides extensive mentor training as well as individual mentor support every step of the way. Please contact Marianne Kersten, Program Director at 503-310-5518 or email@example.com
