FNL Mentoring


FNL Mentoring provides opportunities for young people to be in ongoing, mutually beneficial, caring relationships, which strengthen a young person’s resiliency to challenges in life. The FNL model engages teams of older high school-aged youth to mentor teams of middle school-aged youth in a structured ongoing one-on-one relationship. Counties that participate in Mentoring adhere to certain quality assurance standards while maintaining local creativity, energy and self-determination.
