MENTOR CAPACITY BUILDING MINI-GRANT
- This Application Period Closed 2/06/2023 -
Mentoring at its most basic level provides a consistent, supportive relationship to young people in Kansas. At its more complex level, it is an effective evidence-based prevention and intervention strategy aimed to help address school attendance, mental health support, violence prevention, and workforce development. Mentoring works because it provides youth with caring adults who they can rely on and call upon for help during the challenges and triumphs of their lives.
Mentor Kansas is a program of the Kansas Volunteer Commission, which is a program of the Kansas State Department of Education. For almost 16 years, we have worked to increase the capacity of mentoring programs to serve more youth and inspire more Kansans to be mentors. We connect mentoring programs, offer training and technical assistance, and provide funding opportunities and other resources that support program capacity.
