BUILDING A RELATIONAL BRIDGE
At Kids Hope USA, we believe that all kids matter to Jesus. We believe that the local church is uniquely called to care for children in their community who would benefit from another caring, reliable relationship. These proven church-school partnerships invite volunteer mentors to stand alongside parents, teachers, principals and counselors to ensure kids are valued and loved. Each week, volunteer mentors from your congregation meet with one student for one hour, one day a week during the school day. This consistency and encouragement of a mentor can be an important ingredient in helping children thrive in and out of school.
