Kansas State University football coach Bill Snyder has dedicated his career to mentoring college football players. Now his interest in Kansas prisons will result in funds to help match inmates with mentors of their own.
The Kansas Department of Corrections' Mentoring 4 Success program has paired more than 2,000 mentors with inmates to prepare them to return to Kansas communities. Mentors are making a difference in the lives of inmates, and more are needed.
Mentoring4Success is a statewide initiative that delivers mentoring services to help offenders safely and successfully return to communities. This community-based effort is led by experienced service organizations that guide mentoring organizations and mentors and work closely with the Kansas Department of Corrections to match eligible offenders to mentors as part of reentry.
