THRU Project Mentoring Training

June 15, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The THRU Project is hosting their next mentor training on June 15th. Register today to make a difference in a child’s life!

Thousands age out of foster care without a permanent home or family support.

Many of these young adults become homeless, pregnant, or incarcerated.

For this often-forgotten group, having a mentor can make the difference between statistic or success!

 

If you know anyone interested in becoming a mentor our next mentor informational will be Wednesday, June 15th at 6:00pm. We will briefly discuss the mentoring program and leave time for questions. It will be a great way to see if the program is the right fit. This will be online via zoom, so if you know anyone interested in attending the registration link can be found below:
