Pictures tell stories better than words. Our goal is to elevate the stories of the young people in foster care that we serve. Help us by reviewing our many program pictures and descriptions and creating a picture book that we can hand to external constituents. Then, we can print these on an on-demand basis (from a website like Vistaprint) and use them to tell our story in an impactful, visually-appealing way. We'll provide the pictures and words; we need you to put them together in a way that showcases our youth, their volunteer mentors, and their amazing stories. Thank you!
Silver Lining Mentoring empowers youth in foster care to thrive through committed mentoring relationships and the development of essential life skills.
Silver Lining Mentoring serves youth in the Greater Boston area who have been removed from their families of origin and are living in out-of-home foster, kinship, psychiatric, or congregate care. Youth in foster care are an underserved population that benefits significantly from mentoring.
Silver Lining Mentoring is one of only a few mentoring organizations in the country that exclusively serves this population, and provides the most targeted, specialized mentoring service for young people who have been removed from their homes due to alleged abuse or neglect. Youth in the child welfare system constitute one of the more underserved populations in our community; because of this, these youth can benefit significantly from committed mentorships and increased access to employment training, education, and other critical job- and life-skills resources.
