Friends of the Children is an international nonprofit organization that selects and invites youth – all of whom have unique talents, interests and dreams, and face multiple systemic obstacles – to be paired with a paid, professional mentor called a Friend. They hire and train Friends to support the youth from as early as age 4 through high school graduation – 12+ years, no matter what.
The nonprofit has revolutionized the youth mentoring field by creating the first and only long-term professional mentoring program in the country. They are experts in building sustained and nurturing relationships with youth.

About the nonprofit
What an incredible opportunity to strengthen communities and missions that we wouldn’t ever have met with the typical restrictions of travel, language, or accessibility! I look forward to supporting the cause of Goodera and becoming a regular virtual volunteer for years to come.
