Connections365’s mentoring program works with youth who need additional care in the form of a mentor. Youth are referred by state and county agencies, and are paired with a mentor in order to help reduce negative behaviors, as recommended by each youth’s service plan. Youth in the mentoring program may also be in a therapeutic foster home with Connections365, but not always.
Mentors are highly trained, professional staff members. They practice and model honesty, loyalty, and patience, as they work directly with the youth in their care.
