Mentors sought for Karen youth

The Karen Organization of Minnesota (KOM) is looking for volunteers to mentors Karen youth in Saint Paul middle and high schools. Mentors provide friendship, support and guidance with day-to-day issues as well as planning for the future. Mentors work one-on-one with mentees once a week for three to six months, building meaningful cross-cultural relationships.

For more information, or to sign up as a volunteer, visit this page or contact Rebekah Jacobson at rjacobson@mnkaren.org. Youth mentors complete an interview, background check, reference check and training session. KOM matches mentors and mentees based on gender and common interests.
