Welcome to Kansas Mentors.
"Providing every young Kansan access to a caring and quality mentor."
Kansas Mentors is a statewide mentoring partnership that connects existing mentoring programs with one another and serves as a resource center for communities wishing to start a program. Kansas Mentors works to promote the great mentoring opportunities found throughout the state.
We believe that all children deserve a caring adult role model in their lives to support and guide them; our mission is to help make this a reality. In reflection of that vision, Kansas Mentors focuses its work in two areas:
1. Ensuring young Kansans are receiving the highest quality mentoring services
2. Recruiting more Kansans to become involved in these efforts
