Have a little extra time? Make a difference in the life of a child. Join the Mentors Plus Program.It really doesn't take much. A little time each week. A little caring. A little piece of yourself, reserved just for a special kid who needs it. And Mentors Plus, to put the two of you together and help you learn from each other. Mentors Plus, sponsored by Oakland County Youth Assistance (a part of the Oakland County courts), has been matching caring adults with young people who need them since 1973. Thousands of "matches" have been made, many of which have grown into lasting friendships. You can choose the sort of involvement that seems right for you: prevention, working with an at-risk youngster, or intervention, helping to guide a young person with minor court involvement back onto the right track.Being a mentor is an important contribution, and it's a serious responsibility. But it's also a lot of fun. Your time together can include anything from sharing a movie to taking a walk to hitting a baseball. The important thing is the time, and the good feelings it brings to you both.The next training/orientation session for Mentors Plus is:Saturday, March 18, 201710 a.m.Oakland County Executive Office Building2100 Pontiac Lake RoadWaterford Townshiphttp://www.dailytribune.com/general-news/20170228/oakland-county-seeks-mentors-for-area-youth

What if you could send a simple text to report bullying, criminal activity, or some other potential harm?
