Friends of the Children- Klamath Basin

Friends of the Children- Klamath Basin is the local chapter of a national nonprofit whose mission is to break the cycle of generational poverty.   We do this by providing the most vulnerable children with a long-term, salaried, professional mentor, who we call a “Friend,” to walk with them as they rewrite their story from kindergarten through high school graduation, 12+ years – no matter what. 

We are currently seeking a mentor for our program to serve as a positive adult role model to eight male elementary children (half of whom are indigenous) and develop loving, caring, and sustained relationships with each child.

For each child, a Friend will set positive expectations; nurture and promote each child’s strength, talents, and abilities; help ensure physical and emotional well-being; teach life and academic skills; provide enrichment activities; and model responsible behavior. A Friend will fully document activities and participate in the ongoing evaluation process. Friends will work primarily one-on-one with their children. A Friend must know, understand, honor, and support the organization’s mission, vision, values, and principles, and be able to clearly articulate the organization’s function. Minimum education requirement: 2 or 4 year degree.  Additional direct experience with children maybe substituted for education.  Please visit to submit your cover letter and application today.
