Where can I find a mentor?

Mentors are trusted adults who provide guidance to youth.  Mentors can help you find a job, fill out job or college applications, take you on trips to museums or theme parks, or simply lend an ear when you have had a bad day.  Many kids already have mentors in their lives.  If you are a current or former foster or probation youth and would like to connect with a trusted adult mentor, please contact the Alliance for Children’s Rights at (213) 368-6010 or the DCFS Education and Mentoring Section at (562) 345-6610.
