What is important to the mentoring relationship is the time you spend together and not how much things cost. We encourage Senior Partners to do free, or low-cost, activities with the youth they are mentoring. We also inform Senior Partners of free and low-cost activities within their communities on a regular basis so that they can take advantage of them.
While a youth is waiting to be matched with a mentor, staff tries to establish the fact that neither we nor their eventual mentor will be made of money.
In addition, Partners organizes one free or low-cost activity per month which all partnerships are invited to attend. These include but are not limited to: bowling, ice skating, swimming, camping, museum tours and arts and crafts activities.
