The mission is to create sustained and supportive mentor relationships for children in need ages 7-21.  The program matches youth with inspirational adult mentors who can guide them in developing better self-esteem, creating healthy relationships, and making positive life choices.  Many youth enter the program experiencing varying levels of educational difficulties or social challenges.  Furthermore Rethink Possible Initiative Mentoring has specific programs to target youth in care and adopted youth.  Studies show that children who succeed despite enormous personal, economic or social obstacles often times do so because of the presence of committed and competent role models who believe in them.
