Area students navigated the gutters and knocked down some pins as part of YMCA Kinship's back-to-school event at Corner Lanes in Spirit Lake. The YMCA of the Okobojis offers a community and academic-based youth mentoring program established to match children in Dickinson County and Emmet County with positive adult role models. The program continuously has children who are actively seeking mentors. Anyone who has an hour a week to do everyday activities with a child such as baking, playing games, riding bikes, helping with homework or even sharing a hobby or skill can be a mentor.
