Like bike riding or puzzles? Be a friend to Michelangelo!

Friday, July 18, 2014

Summer is a great time to get started mentoring youth!  If you love spending time outdoors, please consider sharing just an hour or two with youth who are desperate to get outside this summer!  Kids 'n Kinship has 50 kids age 5-16 waiting for someone to spend time with them.  See below for a profile of just one youth:

Name: Michelangelo

Age: 6 

Interests:  Michelangelo enjoys watching movies, playing with legos, puzzles, games, snowball fights, sledding, bike riding, hockey & soccer. 

Personality/Characteristics:  He is fun-loving, friendly, goofy, and active.  He lives with his mom and 4 other siblings. 

Goals/Dreams:  He would love to have a mentor with a snake or a lizard.  His wish is to win the lottery!

For more information: Michelangelo is waiting for a mentor through Kids n’ Kinship in Dakota County. To learn more about this agency, contact Kids n’ Kinship at or 952-892-6368.
