Kaleidoscope: Mentoring

"You are an important part of some luck child's life right now." That’s how Bob Camillucci put it to a gathering of mentors on a recent Saturday morning. Camillucci, a board member of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Columbia Gorge, and himself a mentor, was addressing fellow “Bigs” and supporters, but he could have been talking about nearly any program in the community where caring adults meet on a regular basis to provide guidance, teaching and friendship to young people.

This Kaleidoscope contains three articles on mentoring: A look at what works and what doesn’t; one “Big and Little” relationship; and a list of many of the mentoring opportunities available in the local community. (Such a list can never be complete; look for these and others in future Hood River News editions, under our ongoing column “How to Help.”)
