BOONE COUNTY, Ind. — Matt Wilson has been leading a mission in Boone County to help young people for over 5 years.

Wilson is the executive director of the Boone County Mentoring program, a three-part program based in the area that aims to provide local youth with positive adult influence.

The program has three parts, Wilson said on today’s IndyNow segment: mentoring, youth assistance and a graduation assistance program at Lebanon High School. The mentoring program matches adults based on their personal strengths and personality with a child in need of some adult guidance.
