Kid Reach matches mentors to children who are at risk. PATH says there are several children waiting for a qualified mentor. Mentors say the program has proven to help at-risk children overcome the many challenges they face, including breaking the cycle of poverty.
"I feel it's important because I think kids follow their father," said Kid Reach mentor Andrew Kutach. "In my situation, my mentee's father is incarcerated, and I want him to know there are other opportunities out there, and you don't have to follow your parents path because that might not be the best path."
