What is a Mentor?
A Mentor is a Caring Friend
A mentor is someone that walks with you and your family to help your child reach his or her God-given potential.
There is overwhelming research that shows how a caring adult mentor can improve emotional resilience, behavior, graduation rates, school attendance, and relationships.
All of our mentors come from local churches and go through a detailed vetting, training, and background check process to ensure your child is paired with a godly, trustworthy, and safe mentor.
Though our mentors are recruited from local churches, mentoring is offered to all students in the Pendleton area and there is no requirement that mentees participate in any church activities.
Once a mentor pairing is made, the mentor will stay actively involved in your child’s life, staying in touch at least four times a month and meeting in person at least twice a month. Mentors commit for at least a year, but often build relationships that last a lifetime.
