The LUK Mentoring Program pairs caring, concerned role models with youth who will benefit from additional support. The LUK Mentoring Program serves the cities and towns in Worcester County.
To strengthen our community through high quality, life-enriching, professionally supported one-to-one relationships between volunteer mentors and children in need.
Our Vision Statement
To create successful mentoring relationships for all children who need and want them, resulting in brighter futures by allowing each child to develop into their full potential capable of making informed, responsible decisions.
By sharing fun activities and exposing youth to new experiences, a mentor encourages positive choices, promotes high self-esteem, supports academic achievement and introduces the youth to new ideas. All it takes is volunteering ONE hour a week for ONE year.
Our Service Area
