Since 2001, Adoption & Foster Care Mentoring (AFC) has empowered foster and adopted youth in Greater Boston to flourish through committed mentoring relationships.  AFC is one of only a few mentoring organizations in the country that exclusively serves this population, and provides the most targeted, specialized mentoring service for young people who have been removed from their homes due to alleged abuse or neglect.  Youth in the child welfare system constitute one of the more underserved populations in our community; because of this, these youth can benefit significantly from committed mentorships and increased access to employment training, education, and other critical job- and life-skills resources.
