One to One Mentoring Relationships

Building Life-Changing Relationships

For over 25 years, Kids Hope USA has provided a proven, life-changing program through church-school partnerships that train and equip mentors to reach kids in public schools who are in-need of caring, reliable, one-on-one relationships. 

We provide structure, training, support, and resources designed for use in public schools by churches to give kids what they need most—hope and love from a mentor.

Together, we can make a life-long difference. In every school, in every community. One young heart at a time. Let’s do this in yours.

Church-School partnerships give hope to children through caring and consistent relationships. And hope is powerful! 

Connecting Schools and Churches

Developed for use in public schools.

  • Programs strictly adhere to separation of church and state. 
  • Church partners cover all program costs; there is no cost to the school and minimal school staff investment.
  • Schools and parents identify and give permission for students to participate.  
  • One-on-one mentors support the emotional and social development of students through the power of relationships. 
  • Mentors commit to volunteering one hour during the school day, once a week, for the entire school year.  
  • Mentors are recruited, screened, trained, and supervised by KHUSA church director.

Implemented by churches.

  • Churches bless their community by serving in real and tangible ways. 
  • Churches are filled with people who understand what it means to be faithful, caring, and share unconditional love, and they long to serve their neighbors.  
  • Mentoring supports families, teachers, and all those invested in helping children thrive. 
  • By investing in students and schools, churches build and support community relationships. 
  • Churches acknowledge they are guests of the school and commit to respecting the separation of church and state.

Schools know the difference relationships make.

Churches want to make an impact in their community.
