Silver Lining Mentoring empowers youth in foster care to flourish through committed mentoring relationships. We are the only mentoring organization in Massachusetts that focuses exclusively on youth in foster care. We create a community of consistent, adult support for youth in foster care, enabling them to build the self-confidence, essential life skills, and emotional well-being they need to thrive. Our mentoring relationships last an average of 4.6 years, over six times the national average reported by other mentoring organizations. Clinically-trained social workers provide intensive, individualized support to each mentor/mentee match, helping them navigate challenges and serving as resource brokers for additional services when necessary. By providing youth with a long-term mentor and consistent clinical support Silver Lining Mentoring creates the sense of belonging youth need to succeed.
