Become an EMBRACE Mentor today!
Adoption Network Cleveland's goal for youth (ages 10 and older) in the EMBRACE Mentoring program is to help them connect with an additional supportive, caring adult who can advocate for and understand them as they experience their pre-teen and teen years. As an EMBRACE mentor, you can be a source of advice for youth in adoptive or kinship (related family) care, serving as a role model—someone who has been down the same road and achieved success— and guiding them through their pre-teen and teenage years.
As a mentor, you can bring stability to a youth and their family by offering support and understanding through you life experiences, developing a healthy social relationship, and encouraging opportunities to have fun and learn. Our hope is that these connections become life-long relationships that enrich both youth and mentor, and allow youth to thrive.
