Mentoring in Tennessee

Youth Villages finds mentors to build trusting relationships with children and teens in the state’s foster care system. Mentors provide positive adult influences for young people in foster care -- someone who will help them persevere through hard times, advise them to make the right decisions, and just be a friend.
Youth Villages mentor liaisons train volunteers and facilitate matches with foster children.
