Mentoring forms the heart of YoungLives. Mentors build relationships with teen moms, offering guidance in matters of faith, parenting and self-worth. This investment of time and heart has empowered positive, sustainable change in the lives of these beautiful families for more than 20 years. Mentors are required to have a relationship with Jesus, spend 2-3 hours per week with teen moms and their babies on weeks we don’t meet for Club or Campaigners, come to club once a month, come to Campaigners once a month, attend mentor meetings once a month, and provide transportation to and from YoungLives events. Additionally, a mentor can choose to attend a monthly parenting class held in the high schools we reach out to.
