Mentoring is a very important part of Children's Hope. If you are a mentor, you will be able to spend one-on-one-time with a child who is eligible to participate in the program. The staff will determine when a child is ready to be included in the mentoring program. It is important they be able to begin to develop a relationship with an adult and learn to trust someone. By being able to spend time with you, and doing things with you they can begin to learn to trust again.
Many of the children in our program have experienced a great deal of trauma, neglect, and abuse from the adults in their lives. Our staff provides the opportunity for the children to begin to experience caring, loving relationships and the mentoring program continues that education and experience.
To volunteer for the mentoring program, you must be 21 years of age or older, complete an application, pass a background check, be fingerprinted, and receive CPS approval. We welcome volunteers into the mentoring program. It is a very rewarding experience for our children, as well as for you. It is an amazing opportunity to be able to be a positive impact in a persons life! We encourage you to contact us about changing the life of one of our children. If you are interested in volunteering in the mentoring program, contact the administrator at the campus where you would like to volunteer.
