About Us
The Amaris Ministries Foster Youth Mentor Program exists to meet the varying relational, social and emotional needs of Imperial Valley foster youth. This program provides friendship, guidance and stability for foster children ages 4 - 18, through individual one-on-one mentorships. All mentors operate on a volunteer basis and thus do not receive compensation for their time. This program works in conjunction with Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) to offer these services. Amaris Minitries Foster Youth Mentors do not have to be CASA volunteers, however they are required to complete the applications for both Amaris Ministries and CASA, and must meet the same screening and training requirements as CASA volunteers.


Amaris Ministries would love to help walk you through the process of becoming a Foster Youth Mentor.
