PLEA

KidStart

KidStart is PLEA’s core prevention and diversion program. We provide children and youth who are at risk of experiencing serious difficulties in their lives, with the one-to-one support of a caring volunteer mentor. Through the gift of time, our mentors help these young people to grow, thrive and connect with the community they call home.
