Program for youths
seeking mentors

Organizations concerned about youth have banded together to provide a mentoring program for children on Oahu, Kauai and Maui who have a parent in prison.

The groups include Hawaii Youth Services Network; the Hawaii Intergenerational Network; Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Honolulu; Keiki O Ka Aina Family Learning Centers; Kauai Team Challenge; Maui Youth & Family Services; and the state Department of Public Safety.

They are seeking people to serve as mentors. Mentors can share interests and hobbies with a young person and "do something worthwhile in your spare time in as little as one hour per week," the mentoring project said.

People who are interested are asked to call one of the following agencies for more information or to volunteer:

Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Honolulu, 521-3811; Keiki O Ka Aina Family Learning Centers, 843-2502; Kauai Team Challenge, 651-7619, and Maui Youth & Family Services, 579-8414.
