North Iowa Mentoring Collaborative

North Central Iowa Mentoring Collaborative


The North Central Iowa Mentoring Collaborative was formed in 2012.  Our goal is to guide the collaboration between public and private partners to enhance and expand critical components of local mentoring programs.  Current mentoring program partners of this project include Bridges Mentoring, One on One Mentoring, & RSVP of North Central Iowa.


If you are interested in learning more about how to volunteer or refer a child to a program, please contact a local program in your area.  Programs may differ in the type of services offered.
