Trent and Kelsey are a married couple who volunteered to become mentors to youth in the Bismarck-Mandan area. They were matched respectively with Kaiden and Michaela - who happen to be brother and sister! The couple have been great mentors to Kaiden and Michaela. They get to have fun as a group, and have the opportunity to spend quality one-onone time with their mentees.
From the grandparents
As grandparents raising grandchildren, we find ourselves lacking the youthful energy the children need. The Mentor Squad brought Trent and Kelsey into our lives at just the right time. The kids love spending time with them. They have enjoyed swimming, going to the zoo, bowling, learning about hunter safety, playing board games, and playing at the park and playground. The mentors add so much to our family and have brought a wonderful, positive presence into our lives. We are truly blessed to be involved in this program.

“Being with Trent is the most fun I've had in my entire childhood! He is really cool and likes a lot of the same things that I do, and teaches me to do things that I have never done before.” - Kaiden
“Kelsey is fun and plays with me, she asks what I want to do and does the girly things with me that I like to do.” - Michaela
