Serving others through mentorship

The faith community is called to serve others using the unique talents and spiritual gifts within each person. There are many ways to serve others, but perhaps the most powerful way in today’s world is by being a friend and encourager to a young person.

When you serve as a mentor to a child in need, you are demonstrating God’s love through your attention, your example, and your friendship. You are God’s hands and feet for a child who needs someone to look up to. 


Ways you can mentor

There are many ways for you and members of your faith community to become mentors:

  • Mentor a child individually on your own, 2 to 4 times each month
  • Mentor a child in a group setting once a week in one of our school-based programs
  • Join our Sports Buddies Program to mentor a child who has a specific interest in sports
  • Mentor a teen to prepare for success after high school through our Big Futures program
  • Host a mentoring program in your faith facility
