The Powerful Impact of Mentoring
One of the best parts of mentoring is witnessing the growth in your student’s life. Sarah Dornbos, a director from Eagle Rock CA, recently saw a students life come full circle. She celebrated with Fernanda, a former Kids Hope student who completed mentor training this fall. The celebration was way bigger than just finishing the training.
A mentor named Robin had worked with Fernanda from 2nd to 6th grade and attended her High School graduation. Fernanda finished high school in May and immediately reached out to Sarah, the Kids Hope director, to find out what it takes to get involved with Kids Hope as a mentor. This fall Fernanda scheduled her college classes and job around her Tuesday mentoring sessions with new student Bella.
When a Kids Hope student returns to become a mentor it’s such a momentous event. It’s amazing to see the powerful impact of mentoring paying it forward from a former mentee.
We pray for our students, and on occasion we are privileged to witness 11 years of prayer being answered. We think you’ll agree, it’s a beautiful sight.
