Welcome to the Best Friends Mentoring Program, the largest mentoring organization in southwest North Dakota!
During National Mentoring Month in January, Best Friends is celebrating the nearly 80 mentors volunteering on behalf of our organization in Dickinson, Hebron and New England. These men and women, who range in age from 16 to 65+ are making a positive difference in children and families one at a time! This is during a period in our nation when an estimated 9 million kids are growing up without a mentor to offer real life guidance. Having a caring adult in their lives empowers young people to make smart choices, which ultimately lead to better life decisions!
Best Friends is seeking select men and women to serve as school and community-based mentors to students ages 6-16 in Dickinson-area schools. Please download an application. We have also launched a new outreach for youth in foster care and are looking for caring adults to mentor these youth.
Support our quest to maximize the potential in youth by participating in the on-line Giving Hearts Day on Feb. 9!
