Pierce Brosnan, Wyclef Jean, Jane Seymour, Courteney Cox and David Arquette are among a host of celebrities who have agreed to serve as mentors for children in foster care this year (03).

As a part of their duties, the stars are expected to attend Sunday's (09NOV03) THE DAY OF THE CHILD carnival at Los Angeles' PIERCE COLLEGE.

The organisation's 5,000 participants have agreed to mentor some 5,000 children by spending two days a month with them.

Organiser DAPHNA ZIMAN says, "Steven Dorff is involved, Bruce Davison has been mentoring now for two years, Jc Chasez is involved.

"Catherine Dent, who is bringing the whole cast of The Shield, just completed an entire year with her child Tiffany. When she started, Tiffany wasn't reading, but now she is, and they've even been writing a journal together."
