transform two lives through mentoring

Casa Chirilagua is a proud participant in National Mentoring Month.  Since 2009, Casa has partnered with more than 50 mentors who have served over 60 youth ages 7 to 15 from the Chirilagua community. We strive to place every Kids Club student in a mentoring relationship. Currently we have 9 children who are waiting for this life-transforming relationship. Our goal is to pair each of them with a mentor this month!


Consider some of the benefits of mentoring:

1) Children with mentors find happier, more fulfilling careers.

2) Mentoring can reduce depression symptoms in youth.

3) Mentoring has been found to improve a youth’s relationship with their parents and having better prospects of moving on to higher education.


Here is a helpful  Casa Chirilagua Mentoring FAQ’s sheet.
