Mentor Superior is part of a collaboration of six youth-serving agencies, which include the Duluth Area Family YMCA, Boys & Girls Club of the Northland, Copeland Valley Youth Center, Neighborhood Youth Services, Proctor Hermantown Community Education, and the YWCA of Duluth. Strengthened by 70 years of mentoring experience, the program is dedicated to matching positive adult role models with children ages 5-17.
