Over 60 Students Waiting for Mentors
Futures for Children has launched a dedicated mentorship campaign called "Build a Future ~ Mentor a Child" through the power of mentorship to spread the word about the benefits of mentorship for both mentor and student. Many students are hoping for a mentor who will guide and encourage them in their education and career pursuits.

For that reason, we have several openings for mentorship co-writers. These are individuals who would love to build a relationship with an American Indian child but can’t afford the mentorship payments.
