Make A Friend...Make A Difference
Becoming A Mentor
The mentor is there to be a friend and confident for your child. They are not there to be a parent or to discipline the mentee (child). They are there to help with homework, take them on special outings and just be a friend.
By making your donation today, you will have ensured that a kid will be given the best opportunity to have a positive experience in their life as well as a bright future in their academic, and personal life.

Mentoring Cochise Kids is a private, non-profit, community-based organization working to have a positive influence, through one on one relationships, with youth who are facing tough life challenges.
Refer A Child
It is our desire to match children referred to us with a mentor who will provide a caring hand and sound guidance as they struggle to make good choices. Our volunteers are caring adults who want to help a youth succeed. They don’t try to replace parents or act like a professional youth counselor.
What Our Families are Saying
Mentoring Kids Has Made A Tremendous Difference In My Life
Mentoring kids has made a tremendous difference in my life. I was fortunate enough to be paired with a great young man, Aaron. Through Aaron, I was able to get to know his three brothers: Jose, Christopher and Anthony. They will always have a special place in my heart and I look forward to keeping in touch with them for the rest of my life. I hope that I have made as positive of an impact on them as they have on me. I will always be thankful for the opportunity Mentoring Kids has given me to help shape these young men’s lives.

One of our ladies went to her first meeting with her mentee. She got to the house before her mentee got home from school. When she finally got home and found her mentor waiting for her, she seemed shocked. “I didn’t expect you to come.” She did and they had a great time.
My mentee was so sad about his home life that he said that he wanted to die. We went on a group fishing trip, caught the biggest fish and won the 1st place trophy. The next week he walked into school with his trophy and announced, ‘I’m the greatest fisherman in the world.’”
I couldn’t believe the look of awe on my mentee’s face when he walked into a library for the first time. He was proud of his new library card.
