We are glad that you are interested in giving an hour a week to transform the life of a foster youth . . .

You are on your way to becoming a Braid mentor!


You can learn more about our unique approach to team-based mentoring here.

Becoming a Braid mentor is a three-step process:

First, we want to meet you. We’ll schedule a time to talk on the phone for about 20 minutes to learn more about you and answer any questions you might have.

Second, we want to train you. Our initial training lasts five hours and includes an introduction to the foster system and how to be an effective mentor. If you are inspired by the training and want to continue, we will ask you to complete some paperwork and a background check.

Finally, we want to match you. We will team you up with two other mentors who will balance you and support you and we’ll match your team with a foster youth who will benefit from your particular skills and interests. Now comes the transformative work of mentoring! We can’t wait to hear from you!
