Eddy, a 9-year-old in Brainerd, is the featured Child Waiting for a Mentor.

With baseball as his favorite, Eddy loves all sports. He is also interested in learning to cook, bake, snowmobile and four-wheel. Eddy enjoys board games, bike riding, bowling and swimming.


His favorite subjects in school are reading, science and, of course, lunch and recess.

More quiet and reserved, Eddy sometimes has difficulty making friends. A mentor, a guy or a couple, to provide one-on-one activities and encouragement would help bring out the inquisitive child he is.

Are your interests similar? Or maybe you have a hobby to share with Eddy or another child waiting for a mentor?
