Mentor Duluth matches caring adults with children who can benefit from positive role models.
Derrick is 13 years old and is interested in riding a mountain bike on dirt trails, camping, fishing, hiking, swimming and trying kayaking. When asked what he would like to be when he grows up, he replied, "I am too young to know that yet."
He likes people who are kind, think of him as a person and care about what he likes to do.
He would like his mentor to know that he feels like he's really different than lots of kids because he thinks about "stuff" a lot, like too much.
If Derrick was granted three wishes, they would be to be able to breathe underwater, have the ability to rewind and fix things every time he messes up and that no one ever did things that were bad for them.
Derrick would like a mentor who wants to explore things, have adventures and likes to stay busy and active like himself. He also wants his mentor to be non-judgmental and try to understand him and his family.
