Through the AASK mentoring program, volunteers can choose from two different age groups based on their personal interests and mentoring skills.
When you mentor a foster child, ages 5 to 17, you become extended family for the child, joining them in activities they enjoy, helping with homework or just being there when they need to talk.
Mentoring older foster teens, ages 18 to 21, means being a conduit for the youth, helping them transition into adulthood and out of the foster care system.
