The Clay-Union Foundation matches youth age 5-17 in Clay and Union County, and needs to locate mentors to match with youth.
In Vermillion, a 14-year-old boy would like to have an adult male friend, and a 16-year-old girl would like an adult female to spend some time with her.
The program also has a 12-year-old boy near Jefferson who would enjoy outdoor activities, and just spending time with an adult male.
The volunteers spend two hours per week with their matches, and there are benefits for both the adults and youth in being in a match.
Contact John Gille at (605) 421-5050 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on the program, and to discuss being a strong role model for these youth.
The Clay-Union Foundation is also seeking program sponsors and businesses that would like to host a tour of their facilities for the members, and Gille can also be reached at the contacts above.
