Waiting for a Mentor

These young people are looking for a mentor. Could it be you?

Zayden is an energetic 9 year old.  He enjoys Legos, video games, and playing outdoors.  He is looking for a mentor to help him focus and work on math and reading.

Damian is a shy but outgoing 16-year-old. He enjoys Minecraft, riding bike, electronics, and playing in the woods. He is looking for a mentor to spend one-on-one time with and get out of the house activities outside of the house.

Quite a wide range of interests sums up this 5- year-old girl, Olivia.  She enjoys getting dolled up in pretend make-up and playing dress-up. Olivia also enjoys running and jumping off her extra energy outside while she partakes in her favorite pastime ~ collecting Bugs!  The other thing about Miss Olivia, she will be doing all of this dressed in pink-her favorite color.

Tristin is a 13-year-old young man who is looking for someone to guide him and teach him some ‘manly man’ things.  When asked what he would like to do when a Mentor is found for him, he answered with a simple “Anything, just spend time together.”  Tristin’s all-time favorite meal is Beef Stroganoff, served over noodles of course!  His favorite color is Red and he enjoys Football.  When asked if there was anything he might like to try out with his Mentor, he said he always thought about trying Archery. If you think you just may have an extra quiver sitting with your hunting supplies that you’ve been meaning to blow the dust off of, why not make the call and find out more about becoming Tristin’s Mentor.

John is a very friendly 16-year-old who has a big heart and is funny. John enjoys swimming and playing video games. He is looking for a mentor to get him out of the house to try new things.

Jacob is a 12-year-old boy. He enjoys helping others. He also enjoys playing with other children. Jacob is an outdoor enthusiast and is looking for a mentor that enjoys fishing, 4-wheeling and biking.  

Kaylynn is a 15-year-old girl. Kaylynn hopes to find a mentor to help guide her through the high school years. 

Jackson is a 9-year-old boy who enjoys coin collecting, BMX biking, and cats.  Jackson tells us he has 6 cats.  Jackson loves to go magnet fishing and is intrigued by just about everything train or railroad related.  Jackson says he is pretty excited to meet his mentor as long as they are NOT a fan of roller coasters cuz those he can do without!  

15-year-old Callie is a quiet, shy and reserved young lady who has a sharp, witty and dark sense of humor.  Callie is extremely interested in art and music.  She also enjoys reading and video games.   A sketchpad, pencils, and a rock in a field to sit upon are right up her alley, while overlooking some horses, a barn, or old buildings to draw.

Taylynn is a 5-year-old girly-girl through and through.  She adores playing dress-up and Princess! She enjoys putting on play make-up, doing nails – you name it, anything glitzy!  Taylynn has a twin sister that acts as her mannequin, but she’d surely like a Mentor to do these things with and more. Taylynn likes to ride her bike, go to the park, do crafts and read! Yes, she can read by herself.  Taylynn lives with grandma whose mobility is limited so a Mentor who can get out and play, ride bikes and go to monthly Match Activities is just what Taylynn needs.

“Energetic” is one word that all of us here at the Kinship House think of when we think of our 5-year-old Nevaeh! If only we could bottle that up somehow!  Just like her twin sister, Nevaeh really enjoys riding her bike and going to parks.  She is a big fan of reading and loves to color and paint.  Like her twin sister, Nevaeh needs a Mentor who can get out and do things with her that her grandma is not able to do.

Liam is a warm, kind and caring 13-year-old.  When asked the reason for being in Kinship, Liam responded “to work on my homework and to have someone”.  If you are someone that enjoys art, the spanish language, animals (pretty much any & all, big or small), auto racing, anime and some video games, and as Liam worded it, “are up to try anything new”, then Liam is just the right match for you!  Liam also mentioned that learning to waterski is on the top of the to do list as well!!

Sebastyn is a happy and friendly 5-year-old boy. Sebastyn is currently in kindergarten and enjoys recess.  When he’s not in school, Sebastyn enjoys playing with his Pokemon cards, Legos, swimming, eating fast food (at McD’s!), and he is fluent in sign language.  Sebastyn is really, really hoping that his Mentor is a “Biker Guy”, a “Policeman” or a “Dog Catcher”!  We think those sound pretty great too and are hopeful that one of you reading this just might fit one of these descriptions (or some other exciting role) and be looking to get involved in some adventures with Sebastyn.

Zayn is filled to the brim with 5-year-old boy energy that is for certain!  At the end of the day, there is no stone left unturned.  Zayn is very active, loves to be outdoors, going to parks, sledding, or riding his bike.  When life keeps him inside, Zayn likes music, dancing, and reading.


Jeriah is an 11-year-old boy.  He is looking for a mentor to spend time with outside 4-wheeling or even learning about guns and gun safety. His favorite subjects are math and gym!

Jasper is an 8-year-old boy that enjoys being outside. Jasper loves fishing, swimming, boating, riding his bike, sledding, and shooting his bow.  Now on the chance that Mother Nature throws a wrench in the plans, an indoor day finds him enjoying baking, board games, and believe it or not, talking.  He enjoys having someone willing to just sit with him and talk as he comes from a bigger family, and he enjoys one-on-one time.

Xavier is a 13-year-old happy, talkative teenager looking for a mentor. His favorite subjects are Math, Science and Phy Ed. He also enjoys football, soccer, wrestling, fishing, shooting archery and guns. He enjoys playing chess and video games, as well. He is always open to learning something new!

Alex is a 12-year-old boy. He is a sweet, easy to talk to young man. He enjoys dirt bike riding, open-water fishing, swimming, boating and target shooting.  He is really looking forward to being able to hunt next season if he can get his Hunter’s Safety Certificate.  He is looking for a mentor to spend time doing outdoor activities and hunting. 


 Easy going 8-year-old Ashton is described as both “talkative” and “quiet” and as “outgoing” and “shy”!  He may be hesitant with those he’s unfamiliar with at first, but he warms up quickly.  Ashton loves fishing and just about everything outside.  Well, except – HEIGHTS! He can do without heights.  He’d prefer a Mentor that likes to keep their feet firmly planted on the ground (or a dock with a fishing pole in hand!).

Ozias is a 5-year-old boy looking for a mentor that enjoys swimming, fishing and riding bike. Ozias has great manners, but his mom is hoping for a stable, reliable, confident guy to teach him the art of being a gentleman. Ozias, on the other hand, is just hoping for a mentor to get him out of the “house of girls” he lives in as he is the only boy with 3 sisters. 

Sam is a 17-year-old boy in the 11th grade. Sam has an intensely strong interest in electronics and computers. He hopes to build his own PC, do web design, coding or more.

Xander also likes to fish and spend time outside.  He would like to learn is how cars and trains work.  His favorite class in school is math, his favorite color is green, and his favorite animal is the King Salmon because they swim upstream and are fighters!  Xander says “maybe” he would like to be a commercial fisherman someday.
