Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - Many people like to spring into the spring season by trying something new.

Mentor Duluth says perhaps it's time to do just that, while honing in on your positive role model skills.

The mentoring program commits to one thousand Northland kids by connecting them with good role models to share in new experiences.

On Saturday they held a family–friendly "Try Something New" event at Fitger's in Duluth, which gave kids, mentors, and mentor hopefuls a chance to get tattoos, make cookies, and learn more about the program.

Spokespeople say they're always looking for more mentors.

"We have over 270 kids on our waiting list, so we are looking to get our name out there, to find people who are interested in being mentors, volunteering in their community, and just being a positive adult role model in their kid's life," said Mentor Duluth advocate Pamela Foster
