Hunting For Purpose matches adults with at-risk youth who have requested or been referred to have a mentor. Our program is distinctive from others like it as we provide the opportunity to mentor youth in unique outdoor environments and participate in activities such as hunting, fishing, hiking, camping, skiing, horseback riding, archery, etc.
Why is there a need for positive Mentoring?
The challenge for youth in today’s society is greater than ever. Youth have too few positive role models and far too many negative examples of adulthood. Alcohol, drugs, gangs, pornography, sex and teen pregnancies complicate this critical time in a young person’s life. Far too many good youth get caught up in a direction they may not have chosen if they had a positive mentor to help them see all options, weigh the consequences and make positive choices.
And every day he or she is faced with difficult choices they may have to live with for the rest of their lives.
