The Johnson County Juvenile Services Mentoring Program has extended its coverage to the Kaycee area.
Effective yesterday, mentor applications have been received and background checks are now being conducted on volunteers seeking to make a difference in the lives of Kaycee youth.
The program had its beginnings in the Buffalo area 5 years ago and only recently has interest in the program gained traction in the Kaycee community.
