Mentoring is a formal linking of a young person with a responsible, supportive adult. Many young people do not have enough contact with caring adults. Mentoring is a positive response to this need. Klingberg Family Centers has two volunteer mentoring programs that are intended to provide adolescents with a positive adult role model and guide.
The youth in our program are male and female, ages 14 to 21 years old, who have been referred by the Department of Children and Families. These youth reside in foster homes, group homes, transitional living apartment programs, Community Housing Assistance Programs, or residential settings, within the central Connecticut area (including New Britain, Avon, Berlin, Bristol, Burlington, Canton, Farmington, Newington, Plainville, Plymouth, Rocky Hill, Simsbury, Southington, and Wethersfield).
Come to the April Klingberg Motorcar event and learn about this wonderful program and meet the loving and caring mentors who work with youth in need and the great staff who run the program and support the mentors.
