Omaha Home for Boys Mentoring

 
Make a difference in the life of a boy - be a mentor! We are looking for adults who have a strong desire to work with youth and are willing to commit to a mentoring relationship. Mentoring positively impacts school success, teen pregnancy rates, criminal acts and violent behavior. For residents at the Omaha Home for Boys, being mentored is a chance for a youth to receive individual attention from a caring adult and, most importantly, a chance to just have fun.

If you are interested in becoming a mentor for The Omaha Home for Boys, please call the Omaha Home for Boys at 402-457-7182 or email Kristi Lesley at kristil@omahahomeforboys.org
