My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Kids 'n Kinship Inc, APPLE VALLEY, MN, USA
I have been matched with my mentee for 3 years now through Kids 'n Kinship and getting to be a part of her life has been such a wonderful experience! We both expose each other to new things and enjoy exploring new things together. We have also been SUPER lucky to get to experience a variety of fun, memory making events through donations by very generous donors that we otherwise wouldn't be able to afford to do together (Taylor Swift concert, Vikings game, Escape Rooms, Twins games, Arcade games). We really enjoy our weekly time together, building a great, fun relationship! We're able to talk and connect in ways like close friends do so it's been great gaining that level of trust and being able to be a source of support and encouragement for my mentee! It's been really fun and rewarding to see the changes that our relationship has made in each of our lives, and continues to make. I look forward to being a part of her life for many years ahead and hope to be a positive influence in her life in any way that I can, hopefully encouraging her to "pay it forward" one day too! The staff at Kids 'n Kinship are AMAZING and so very accessible and helpful in providing resources, advice/support, and making us aware of opportunities for my mentee and I to experience together! I HIGHLY recommend this program as a wonderful way to invest in the life of a child and your community!!
