Topeka Parole Office Hosts Mentor Appreciation Day

Mentors Al Scott and Starr Williams, Parole Officer Juna Green and M4S Coordinator Kelsee Torrez tour the Topeka Parole Office Friday.

Parole officers and other Kansas Department of Corrections (KDOC) staff organized the event and invited M4S mentors to visit the Topeka Parole Office to meet KDOC staff, tour the office and receive recognition for the support mentors provide to offenders under supervision.

Every day, mentors support the work of correctional case workers and service/treatment providers by assisting offenders in reaching their reentry plan goals. Mentors also have been instrumental in helping offenders establish a life of pro-social activities and meaningful engagement within their communities. To date, more than 3,200 offenders have been matched with mentors.

"We truly do appreciate the work that Mentoring4Success mentors accomplish every day and are grateful to have had this opportunity to show them our support for their work," said Kelli Martinez, the KDOC's Community Reentry Services Coordinator.
