What It Takes To Be A Child's Mentor

Parents are cool, teachers can help, and friends are great... but sometimes a young person needs a mentor.

An adult who doesn't live with a child or give them grades can help steer them to a fulfilling future. That's the basic idea at Rogue Valley Mentoring, which is always looking for adults with time and skills and clean criminal backgrounds to mentor young people.

Another round of training comes up later in September; we visit with RVM Executive Director Laura Pinney and Mentor Supervisor Lynn Chertkov.
