Foundation seeks mentors and matches

The Clay-Union Foundation matches youth age 5-17 in Clay and Union counties, and would like to invite new members throughout the two counties to join as a mentor, or as a member. The volunteers spend two hours per week with their match, and there is no cost to join.  Mentoring is a great way to share talents, skills and values, and pays benefits for everyone involved.

  The program has two 14-year-old girls and a 13-year-old boy in Elk Point, and a 12-year-old boy near Jefferson, all seeking to find an adult mentor.  An adult male volunteer is also seeking to find a match with a boy in Vermillion, and is ready to be a mentor. 

The program website has applications at  and they may be emailed to the director.  The process takes several weeks, so sign up now as a mentor, to get it started, or join as a youth and meet other matches.  Contact John Gille at 605-421-5050 or email for more information on helping the program grow.
