Think about it...

Who do you call when you've had a bad day?

Who do you contact for help filling out a job application, college paperwork, tax forms, etc?

Who encourages you and supports your goals?

Who taught you how to create a budget, do laundry, cook?

There are hundreds of teens in our communities that are homeless.

There are numerous young adults in our community who have aged out of foster care.

These teens/young adults don't have anyone who can help them with these everyday tasks.

It is the vision of the Eagle Fly Program to provide mentors to these young adults to prepare them for life and to help get them on the right track for their future. We  want to instill hope and prevent them from being a statistic.  YOU can help!

What is a mentor?

A mentor is someone who teaches or gives help and advice to a less- experienced and often younger person

  • Mentor programs work because they provide encouragement and guidance to each young adult that participates

  • Roles of non-familial adults in the lives of at risk children have been shown to be beneficial in increasing residency and success
