AFKA PROVINCIAL MENTORSHIP PROGRAM

The AFKA Provincial Mentorship Program believes in foster and kinship caregivers. Through collaboration, training, mentoring and non-threatening support, families who care for children will feel empowered and able to succesfully self-advocate. In a safe environment, foster and kinship caregivers will be supported to develop confidence, motivation and additional skills as caregivers. It is through this positive self-growth that we, as individuals, can have a positive impact on the lives of others.
