These Saratoga Area Mentoring Services & Life Coaches Are Empowering Kids

Whether you're a parent trying to raise your children as best as you can, or a kid/teen navigating your way through life, a mentor or personal life coach can help guide you through these tough times. Mentors can serve as role models, confidants, and friends, while life coaches work to identify the root of problems and give advice and treatments for each individual situation. Here in the Saratoga area, there are a few mentoring services and life coaches who specialize in improving the lives of children and families.

Saratoga Mentoring Program: Matching Children with Caring Mentors

Studies have shown that having an involved mentor helps children perform better in school, make more positive choices, get along better with others, and look more positively toward the future. While the benefits of mentoring on mentees are clear, mentors also find their own roles to be thoroughly rewarding.

The Saratoga Mentoring Program is a win-win situation for children and their adult volunteer mentors. The program matches kids (ages 7-17) with mentors (ages 18-70) and the pairs connect for a few hours each week to do fun activities, like playing games, watching movies, or participating in sports. While mentors do become a trusted adult presence in the child's life, they are asked to be a steady friend while respecting the existing role of parents or guardians.

The Saratoga Mentoring Program is always looking for new volunteers. If you think you could be a good fit for a mentoring partnership, visit their website to fill out the mentor application today. The website also has an application for mentees if you are the parent or guardian of a child who could benefit from the program.
