Kinship Blog

Kinship Partners is a nonprofit youth mentoring organization serving families within Crow Wing county, southern Cass county and Staples/Motley area of Minnesota by providing positive role models to youth in our communities. 


Why is mentoring important?  Our community’s future rests on the hopes and dreams of our children and youth.  Every child deserves a responsible and concerned adult who will provide guidance and support, help set and accomplish goals, and act as a positive role model. 

Match of the Month:     

Kinship Partners is pleased to honor Dylan Jones and Gail Massie, both from Brainerd, as its newest Match of the Month.

In January 2012, when Dylan was 6 years old, he and Gail became Kinship Partners. As both will tell you, they make a great match.

These two have done many fun activities together; swimming at the beach, walking to parks, workshops at Home Depot and the occasional movie at the theater. The county fair is a favorite of theirs.

Gail and Dylan especially enjoy going to Kinship Activities. They have recently gone to the Kinship Christmas Party, the Rapid River Swimming Event and the Crow Wing County Museum Tour.

Gail says her favorite times with Dylan are when he shares his thoughts or plans with her. Their friendship adds a dimension of joy that she gets only from him.
