I C.A.R.E. MENTORING NETWORK
Fort Worth, TX, Kansas City, MO, Washington, DC
Mentors who are...
Committed, Accountable, Responsible and Engaged
in Leading Young People, who are destined to be future Emerging and Aspiring Global Leaders and or Entrepreneurs to Soar like (EAGLES) to New Heights
At FLON, We believe it takes an entire F.A.M.I.L.Y. to raise a child; that requires Fathers, all Adults, and Mothers to be Involved in Leading and Loving Young People.
The I CARE Mentoring Network collaborates with the F.A.M.I.L.Y., people who have the Commitment, Accountability, Responsibility, and energy to remain Engaged and support young people to stay focused on pursuing their dreams.
Benefits of Mentoring for Young People
Mentoring is often one component of a program that involves other elements, such as what FLON provides to young people who are involved in any of our school, community, or faith-based services. Supportive, healthy relationships formed between mentors and mentees are both immediate and long-term and contribute to a host of benefits for mentors and mentees. Resource: Youth.gov
