VIP Mentoring and Netlink Foundation have teamed up to bring at-risk children hope through mentoring. VIP Mentoring has been working to break the cycle of truancy, dependency, abuse and incarceration for at-risk children and adults for more than 35 years. Today, VIP Mentoring continues to be composed of an efficient, results-driven team of professionals dedicated to matching at-risk youth, 7 to 14 years of age, with responsible, caring adult mentors.
