Becoming part of a Braid team is a three-step process:
Meeting: 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. As soon as you fill out the form below, the opportunity to schedule a call will pop up on the screen.
Training: 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.
Matching: We will team you up with teammates 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!
