MILK

Mentors In The Lives of Kids

MILK’s Community Partners:

Big Brothers Big Sisters

This program matches youth facing adversity with mentors in a one-to-one mentoring relationship. Bigs help inspire greater self-confidence, better academic performance, and dreams for the future that will change their life for the better, forever.

Bigs must be older than 18 years old and dedicate at least 1 hour per week, but times are flexible.

Center for Supportive Communities

CSC works with elementary, middle, and high school students participating in our SupportED program. SupportED is a community-based diversion program for truant children and youth in Douglas County. Mentors work alongside families and schools in a collaborative effort to divert children from court involvement. We strive to ensure all Douglas County children and youth receive effective care and quality education.

The application process includes a form using this link, and an interview.
