Professional Mentor K-5 Progam

Friends of the Children – SF Bay Area (Friends-SF) is part of a growing national network of mentoring chapters with a proven long-term track record of helping children break the cycle of generational poverty.

We employ trained, full-time professional mentors – we call them “Friends” – to provide a stable, caring, and sustained relationship in each child’s life. Our program works to empower each child for 12-1/2 years, no matter what!

Each of our Professional Mentors develops intensive, long-term, trusting relationships with eight children utilizing a trauma informed lens in a classroom setting.
