If mentoring youth is your passion, the Mattie Rhodes Center has unique opportunity to be a part of the solution, mentoring youth in our community. In a partnership with Kansas City Public Schools, this will give a K-12 student the opportunity to build a meaningful relationship with a caring adult. Training sessions are coming up in September.
