Group Mentoring is an organized group activity for all program participants, including children on the waiting list and potential mentors. This is a good way for potential mentors to "try out" the program and meet children they may be interested in mentoring, and for those who would like to be involved, but can't make a specific time commitment to one child. Group mentoring is held regularly, either every other month or once a quarter, and activities usually include fun, recreational events, exposing participants to a variety of new experiences. Past group mentoring activities have included sporting events, local fairs, museums, BBQs, and water parks.
