Welcome to Mentor Kansas

Mentor Kansas is a statewide mentoring partnership that connects over mentoring programs with one another. We believe that all youth deserve a caring adult role model in their lives to support and guide them. In reflection of that vision, Mentor Kansas' mission is to promote safe and effective youth mentoring practices and inspire Kansans to be mentors.

We are a proud affiliate of MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership and we act as a liaison of information and resources between the national movement and our state’s mentoring programs.
