"Mentoring has made me realize how much I truly love spending time with kids. I believe there is no more valuable way to spend my time than investing in their futures as an educator." -Jordan Truda
"As an empty nester, I began to reflect on who I was becoming...and it wasn't very pretty. I was a bit self-focused, even in my church experience...I have grown to love these children and it is my prayer that the 2 hours I spend each week is used by God to soothe the hurt that these students face during much of their struggling journey." -Mary Venable
Perhaps like Jordan and Mary, you are looking for something that provides a real sense of purpose and fulfillment. We couldn't be more pleased that Jordan was inspired by his experiences as one of our volunteer mentors to pursue a teaching career, or that Mary found a sense of renewal by investing in the lives of her young friends at Youth Life.
We encourage you to also "be inspired" by investing just two hours of your time a week to help transform the life of a child. If you are interested in offering your guidance and support to one of our Learning Center children as a volunteer mentor, or by becoming one of our summer interns, please contact our Mentor Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Youth Life at 228-1620.
