Review for Friends For Youth, Inc., Redwood City, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When I heard about Friends for Youth, I was really interested in becoming a senior friend/mentor. I kept saying tomorrow, when work lets up, when my travel schedule declines, when....and then one day I it clicked....you have to make the time to reach out and help. I was matched in January with a young boy, age 9. Over the past 8 months we have formed a heartwarming relationship that is built on trust, guidance, friendship, and dependability. We both value our friendship and I can honestly say, it is good for my heart and soul.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

exceptional. The Friends for Youth staff are very professional and set the benchmark in mentoring best practices. They provide ongoing guidance, friendship activities and support.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2008

Role:  Volunteer & Senior Friend / Mentor.
