Mentor a Child

Bake Back America created Mentor a Child as a platform for volunteers to connect children in a buddy system. This initiative gives volunteers an opportunity to mentor a child and be a friend.

Cole is a 6th Grader at Robert Bell Middle School in Chappaqua. He loves to play sports such as soccer, basketball and tennis. He also really enjoys going on hikes with his dog.
