Seedling launched their Mentor Program in February 2006 at the request of a group of school principals who were concerned about the growing number of children affected by the incarceration of one or both of their parents. Seedling recruits volunteers from the community, matches them with eligible children and offers ongoing support to both children and mentors. The mentors provide stable, long-term relationships for the students that can help them develop and maintain positive attitudes towards school.
