Mentors walk with a family for a year providing care and support to the entire family. We expect our mentors to:
Be in contact with the family, by phone, text, smoke signals… it doesn’t matter to us. Communication is essential for empowerment.
Connect with the family face to face. This often happens on the second Saturday of every month during food pick up.
4 Times a Year
We put on Family Fun Nights four times during the school year. This is a great time for mentors to have fun with their entire family.
3 Times a Year
Participate in Action Plan meetings with your family. This is where the mentor and the family set goals together for how they want to grow.
2 Times a Year
Take the family on an excursion of some sort. This may be simply a picnic at Lake Murray, invite them to your home for an evening, or maybe even to a trip to the zoo.
