Skookum Mentors

Skookum Mentors is a pilot program where foster children are paired with a safe and healthy adult for one-on-one mentoring.  Mentors are trained and background checked case aides who are equipped to provide social, academic and recreational support for your foster child and your family.

To be eligible for Skookum Mentorship, children must:

  • be placed in a licensed foster home

  • be currently in the foster care system

  • be school aged- between 5 and 18 years old

Mentorship is designed to work best for your family, and can take place when and where you desire.  If you're interested in having your child mentored, please fill out the the mentorship request form below.  Mentorship is completely free to foster parents, and does not require a social worker referral.
