Cleveland Angels Dare to Dream Mentoring Program
The heart of the Dare to Dream program is to walk alongside youth in foster care as they navigate life's challenges. The youth in our Dare to Dream program need the wisdom, advice, encouragement, and community that mentors can provide. Mentors meet practical and emotional needs as well as provide guidance through developmental milestones. The goal is for youth to be engaged, and to feel supported and equipped to navigate life. A mentor commits to meeting with the youth every other week to set goals and help them achieve their dreams. This program is a one year commitment, though the relationship will hopefully last a lifetime. Mentors matched with a high school student are strongly encouraged to stay with the youth until high school graduation.
The simple act of telling youth “I believe in you,” “You are special,” and “You are going to do great things!” can change their path completely.
