Mentors in Motion

Mentors in Motion is a new Community-Based mentoring program currently being offered in Eau Claire, Chippewa Falls, and River Falls communities.  The focus of this program is on being active when the Big and Little meet.  We ask that each match spend about 3 hours per month being active.  The focus is on building a relationship between the Big and Little, but also a focus on healthier habits and healthier lifestyles.  By being active and trying new things, we are establishing life long habits for today's youth.

Anyone interested in volunteering or enrolling a child in Mentors in Motion can call 800-648-1696 or email
