Nationally, there are many, many thousands of kids on waiting lists for a mentor. Kids that get how wonderful it would be to have a caring adult male in their lives and who are just waiting because the men haven't shown up. What I just love about One-On-One Partners, Mentoring Youth is their willingness to work with kids who are on their waiting list for a mentor. They call their "Esperanza Club" their hope club. These kids are invited to all monthly events and participate in a bi-weekly program where they interact with adult mentors in a group setting.

One-On-One Partners also gets that even the kids with two parents want and need other adults in their lives. Unlike many mentoring agencies, they will make those matches when possible too.

Check out their website for some amazing success stories and to find the motivation to be involved in a kid's life.
