Mentoring

Posted on 26 January 2011 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—January is Mentoring Month and some 90 mentors are currently volunteering through the GRIP Program through Youth and Shelter Services. GRIP stands for Great Relationships In Pairs. Barb Biersner, Program Director says mentors work with children from Boone, Ogden and Southeast Webster Grand currently. She says funding and volunteers limit the growth at this time. Biersner says the numbers couple easily double if there were enough people willing to take 45 minutes a week for a child.
