Silver Lining Mentoring’s vision is to ignite a paradigm shift in how we support youth who have experienced trauma by demonstrating that consistent, long-term positive adult support can help young people in foster care to thrive. SLM’s goal is to ensure that mentoring organizations, child welfare agencies, youth development organizations, and policy makers understand how consistent, positive mentoring relationships are an essential part of healthy development for all youth, especially those impacted by foster care, while also nationalizing this message through mass media. Through the Silver Lining Institute, SLM will be the preeminent resource for supporting youth in foster care through mentoring, impacting thousands of youth in foster care nationwide and ensuring they receive the supports and services they need to thrive.
