COACH Kids was created in 2007 to fulfill a need in Clinton County for a faith based mentoring program for at risk youth. What started out as Big Brothers, Big Sisters in the 1970’s by a teacher who saw a need within one of his students, has evolved into a local organization who works with schools, churches and other local groups to provide mentors. COACH is an acronym for Christ Offers All Children Hope

The Mission of COACH Kids is to provide youth with hope to reach their God-given potential through safe and compassionate mentoring relationships.

COACH Kids of Clinton County is a faith-based youth mentoring agency based in Clinton County, Indiana. COACH Kids matches at-risk youth with safe and compassionate mentors who can bring hope and friendship into the lives of kids who need an extra heart.

There are two distinctive programs to match youth and mentors through COACH Kids. Local Heroes works with local partners in Clinton County to provide mentors on location. 30 minutes a week, on a consistent basis, makes a big difference in the life of a child!

Community Hope is a community-based mentoring program that means 4-6 hours, or more, of quality time for an adult mentor and a child. This can be walking in the park, playing catch or going to the grocery store. All along the way, there are opportunities to share and grow together.
