Katelyn and Sara
Mentor Duluth pairs caring adults with kids who can benefit from positive role models.
Katelyn and Sara have been matched for more than three years, and celebrate their "friendaversary" every March.
Sara has experienced several transitions in her life, and Katelyn is a stable mentor Sara can reach out to. Sara's grandma says Sara looks up to Katelyn like a girl looks up to her mom, and that she enjoys having someone to talk to and spend time with. When asked what she likes about Katelyn, Sara said, "Everything!" Katelyn has shared that Sara has taught her to laugh from the soul, to relax and be silly, and to have fun.
Together the two go fishing, visit the animal shelter, go sightseeing around the Twin Ports, get ice cream, go to the Edge, attend plays, listen to music and watch movies.
