Helping young people reach their full potential
MentorKids USA’s vision is to create a world where all youth reach their full God-given potential by creating promise neighborhoods across the country. Currently with three sites in the Greater Phoenix area, in South Phoenix, Palomino and South Scottsdale neighborhoods, the organization plans to expand regionally within Arizona and eventually in additional states.
The organization’s key program model incorporates Promise Neighborhoods which bring together youth, families, mentors, volunteers, churches, local business partners and other partners in under-served communities with the purpose of creating long-term solutions to the challenges facing their youth.
