The Leadershop: Mentoring and Youth Programs
From the web site: "The LeaderShop offers a variety of programs designed to help today’s youth build confidence, knowledge and leadership.

The mentoring program establishes a one-to-one relationship between a screened and trained adult volunteer and a child (ages 5 through 12) in need of additional adult contact, guidance and support. There are all different types of kids involved in the program. Youth are from various backgrounds: some reside in a single parent household, some live in a group home, some live with both parents, and all have a need for extra support. Volunteers also vary by age, cultural backgrounds and interests. In an effort to create the best match possible, youth and adults are matched by the Mentor Coordinator according to their interests, not by length of time on the waiting list. The expectation is that the match will meet weekly for at least a year." Located in LaGrange, IL.
