Mentoring youth pays dividends

Mentoring youth does pay dividends for both adults and youth. The youth build a strong relationship with their match, while adults report seeing the child open up and really become more engaging at home, in school and in social settings.

The Clay-Union Foundation would like to match youth in our area, so they too can have the benefit of a caring adult mentor who can share new hobbies, interests and ideas with them.

A 16-year-old girl in Vermillion, a 12-year-old boy in Jefferson, a 13-year-old boy in Elk Point and two14-year-old girls in Elk Point are all seeking an adult mentor.

Contact John Gille at (605) 421-5050 for more details, or go to the Web site for an application.

The program is funded by many area businesses, organizations and in part by the United Way of Vermillion.
