Day 50 Good Everyday Iowa

Yep, we’re in Iowa today. Iowa Children Of Promise has the spotlight for their outstanding mentoring efforts.

According to their site:

Our One-on-One Mentoring Program is community-based and supports the creation and maintenance of quality, lasting, mentoring relationships between children of parents involved in the criminal justice system and caring, supportive, adult mentors. In Linn County the youth served range from 6-17 years old, whereas in Johnson County the focus is on 12-17 year old youth, many who are already involved in the criminal justice system themselves.

Keep shining ICOP!
