Sierra Forever Families’ Wonder Mentor Program is the only mentoring program that provides mentoring to foster youth in Sacramento County. We match youth (Explorers) in foster care with one-on-one caring adults (Guides) who are committed to encouraging, engaging, and enriching their young lives. With a focus on fun, each mentor Guides his or her child through a year-long journey filled with excursions in music, the arts, sports, nature, volunteer services, and dining out. In many cases, these events are the child’s “firsts”, filled with adventure, excitement and self-discovery.
For others, it’s an opportunity to explore personal interests and talents. For all of them, it’s the stability of a consistent adult who encourages them to try something new, engages them in conversations, and enriches their lives. It’s a connection with an adult who believes in them.
