**About SSYAF’s Wonder Mentoring Program
This program matches children and youth impacted by foster care, with one-to-one, caring, consistent adult mentors. These “Wonder Guides” are trained to listen, support, and guide a child through fun, age-appropriate experiences in music, the arts, sports, volunteer service, dining out, and nature. A Wonder Guide may be the most consistent adult a child in care has in their lives.
