Kids 'n Kinship


Kids 'n Kinship serves children in the following cities: Apple Valley, Burnsville, Eagan, Farmington, Lakeville and Rosemount. Below are a few highlights of some of the many children waiting for mentors:


GT is 8 and interested in swimming, sledding in winter, video games and baseball. He is eager and outgoing. His older brother has a mentor and he knows it is fun. His single-parent mom would like a positive role model male, couple or a family to provide academic encouragement and active interests for her son. GT would like to learn to be even better at video games and he really likes Legos.


Alex is 9 years old. He enjoys sports such as football, basketball, and soccer. He also likes playing with toy cars, swimming, & going to the zoo and circuses (he loves animals). Alex is very talkative and active. He lives in Farmington with his single parent mom and his older sister. He doesn’t have any contact with his dad and his mom wants a male mentor or couple to spend time with him. Alex wants to play football and loves to go to skate parks.


Hannah is 11 years old. She enjoys swimming but not in deep water yet. She likes drawing, reading, TV, and visiting, as well as sports. She likes most everything except having nothing to do. She is less a princess type girl and more of a tomboy girl. Hannah is talkative, active, energetic, musical and really wants a mentor. Her teacher says "She really is a mentoring dream - sweet, great conversationalist, avid reader, and learner!” Hannah moved from out of state to MN during the school year. Hannah says "I would like a mentor who enjoys having fun and being outside - and I can tell a great scary story!"


Aaron, age 11, loves animals and all kinds of sports. Tops on his list are tennis, basketball, baseball, kickball, soccer, track and field and hockey. Then comes relaxing, eating and talking. And board games too! His single parent mom is looking for a positive male role model for Aaron to look up to and share his sports interests. He is really looking forward to having a mentor. Aaron is in 4th grade; he told us "I am very excited about having a mentor and I hope I get someone who likes sports!"


Elizabeth, age 9, enjoys being outside and making crafts, any kinds of crafts. She particularly enjoys drawing. She also likes soccer and softball. Elizabeth is friendly and interested in having a mentor. Her single parent mom would like a mentor who can be patient with Elizabeth's learning disability, help her with reading and encourage confidence. Elizabeth is a talented artist and could teach a mentor about drawing bunnies or flowers. Elizabeth would like an individual female mentor or a couple, who enjoys art projects.


Miranda is a very sweet, shy 16 year old. She lives with her father and would love to have a young, female role model in her life to talk and do girly things. She struggles at school sometimes and could use academic and social guidance. She loves to get coffee and talk. She also likes shopping at the mall and movies. She loves to draw and would like to be an artist when she grows up.
