January is National Mentoring Month, and RUSC Kinship Mentoring Director Erin Koehntop told the KMRS Community Connection that mentoring is good for kids and adults.
Koehntop said mentoring can give a kid a different experience than what they have at home. RUSC’s signature program, which pairs adults in the community with kids four hours a month outside of school, seeks five new mentors for three boys and two girls ages 5 to 15. Those interested need to fill out an application, pass a background check and set up an interview. That process can begin online at rusckinship.org, over the phone at 320-585-7872, or at their office at 215 Atlantic Avenue in Morris.
