Infinite Family is engaged in distance mentoring of underserved South African youth. We have mentored ~500 students in our history with NGO partners in communities ravaged by HIV/AIDS. Many are orphans enduring epic challenges. Our mentors are adults from all over the world who share their vast wealth of perspectives, knowledge, and skills during weekly face-to-face mentoring via the Internet. Infinite Family promotes self-reliance--to augment what is taught in the classroom and the home to develop responsible, resourceful students as they prepare for young adulthood and beyond. To achieve this, we work with mentors and Net Buddies to develop skills in five areas of impact: Communications, Education, Life Skills, Technology, and Career Preparation.
