TrueMentors making a difference

Elijah was on the TrueMentors waiting list for nearly six months looking for a male role model; someone who thinks the things he likes are interesting, and who wants to play games and get him out of the house. He likes animals, which isn’t that unusual for a child, but also architecture and computers. Luckily, Alan, his perfect match, came along! 

Alan came to TrueNorth looking for a way for a way to give back and work with kids. He has a Master’s Degree in Data Science from the University of Michigan and works for a housing developer. Alan enjoys reading, computers, and comedy. Together, the pair visit and tour old, historic buildings, participate in coding classes, and play board games online when their schedules don’t align.

Currently, our TrueMentors Program has several young boys on our waiting list who need a positive adult role model. A special shout out goes to our only current male volunteer, Alan! Perhaps you or someone you know might be interested in being a positive influence in a young man’s life. Pass it on – be a mentor!

Another way to get involved is also a very easy and super fun one; Bowlapalooza! There’s still time to organize a team and participate in this annual bowling fundraiser to help our TrueMentors staff recruit, train and match adult mentors with local kids who need them. Bowlapalooza takes place April 20th and 21st at Fremont Lanes.
