ALBERT LEA, Minn. - January is "National Mentoring Month" and one local program is asking for your help.

The Stars Mentoring Program, based in Albert Lea, serves 25 at-risk youth with just over 20 mentors. However, with a long waiting list those with the program say they're in need of more help.

Research shows quality mentoring programs are proven to build relationships that help kids in school and at home. That's why the program is looking for more mentors to help make a difference in kids' lives.

"Having that person, that go-to person to go to even you know when things are all crumbling around you," Taylor McCullough, with the program, said.
