Our volunteers provide youth the opportunity to form lifelong connections with mentors to rely on as they mature. Our X-Factors are volunteers that undergo an application and interview process and are hand selected based on their skills and dedication to changing the lives of foster youth.
Children in foster care are among our nation’s most vulnerable young people. Many have been abused or neglected, resulting in a host of emotional and developmental needs. Because they may experience frequent transitions and instability, foster children can benefit tremendously from the attention of mature, caring adults who serve as mentors in the X-Factor Program.
X- Factors plan positive activities with youth to provide emotional and development support, academic assistance and new experiences.
