Mentor program on Orcas continues to grow

April 24, 2014 · Updated 1:04 PM

The Funhouse Commons Mentor Program continues to provide Orcas Island youth with traditional one-on-one mentor matches and several types of project-based mentorships that link caring adults with small groups of children.

The program is proud to announce its involvement in a statewide initiative for youth mentoring programs called Quality Assessment Mentoring Path sponsored by Washington State Mentors.

Washington State Mentors collaborates with programs across Washington State in a structured and systematic process that results in an improvement and innovation plan. They also provide a breadth of resources to support successful plan implementation.

“This is a tremendous opportunity.  It provides The Funhouse mentor program with the ability to grow and further develop, while providing clear benefits for this critical island program,” said Executive Director Krista Bouchey.

Mentoring relationships are an essential part of keeping a community healthy, Bouchey says. Mentors provide their mentees with an experienced friend and guide who is there to support, advise, and help in numerous situations.

The Funhouse is actively seeking responsible, positive, energetic people, teens or adults, for one-on-one, project-based and online learning mentors. We also welcome parents who are looking to connect their child with a caring adult.

Contact the Funhouse at 376-7177 or email emilie@thefunhouse.org for more information.
