Mentor

Our students often feel disconnected from others or lack positive examples of how to live their lives.
They crave positive, stable mentors to listen to them without judgement, love them unconditionally, and help them rise to the challenges they face.
We need your help building confidence, connection, character and faith in our students.
You can act as either a Life Mentor a Spiritual Mentor or both. .



Life Mentor

 

A life mentor meets regularly with a student to discuss life, and acts as a positive role model for the student. As a life mentor, you can spend time with your student by involving the student in both formal outings and your routine daily life.

 

  • Initial meeting with staff
  • Inviting student to join in your routine, daily activities
  • Help with school work if needed
  • Sharing meals with the student

Spiritual Mentor

 

A spiritual mentor works with students who have decided to give their life to Christ by demonstrating a Christian lifestyle. As a Spiritual Mentor you will:

 

  • Invite student to join you in your routine, daily activities
  • Pray with the student and encourage him or her to spend time in prayer
  • Invite student to join you in worship
  • Spend time reading and processing Scripture with student
  • Encourage the student to spend quiet time with the Lord

Community Action Team Member

Fulfilling our mission requires the contribution of diverse skills and talents from our friends in the community. Each campus seeks a Community Action Team (CAT) of local volunteers to secure the time, talent and treasure required for the campus to operate at an optimal level. CAT members lead the following committees:

Hospitality | Development | Job Training

It takes the entire community to raise and care for our youth. A CAT member leads a committee of five or more volunteers to assist with recruiting mentors, serving food, maintaining the building, and organizing social and fellowship events for our students.

Each campus needs facilities and resources to serve its students. A CAT member leads a committee of five or more volunteers to develop resources supporting the campus, including fundraising, event planning, connecting us with community leaders, and sharing our mission locally.

Job Training is one of our primary focuses. A CAT member leads a committee of five or more volunteers to provide support for our micro businesses and help us connect with local businesses to develop work teams and internship placements.
