Youth Service Programs
PALS Mentoring Program: Child Pals are elementary or middle school students that have been referred by the school or their parents. Adult Pals are trained volunteers who meet weekly with their assigned student during school hours. These consistent one-on-one relationships give children a role model and a dependable friend with whom they can share their feelings, hopes and dreams. CARE therapists meet with the Adult Pals on a weekly basis for training and supervision. To contact Rio Vista CARE regarding the Pals Program, Click Here
