Valuable Time Well Spent

One simple thing that makes a big difference in the life of an at-risk child is one-on-one positive attention from a responsible and caring adult. The PEARL Child Mentoring Program matches children to trained mentors with the goal of developing a positive and supportive child/adult relationship.  They meet for one hour per week and their activities may include homework help, reading and/or math games, board games, craft/hobby projects, physical activities in the gymnasium and lots of child-adult conversation.  The time is tailored to meet the needs of the child.  We evaluate academic and behavioral performance as well satisfaction surveys of the mentor, the mentee and the mentee’s parent.

In just one hour a week, mentors build up mentees with individualized attention and love while reading, talking, playing and listening to their stories. With this support, children are encouraged to learn, grow and succeed.

This program serves primarily elementary children but includes middle school and high school students as well.  It operates during the school year.

Mentor Story

I didn’t realize [as a mentor] I’d have the opportunity to grow such a wonderful friendship with my student. It was so rewarding! It was a growing experience and a project in progress.

Mentor Story

My parents quietly provided food, shelter, rent money, and love to hundreds of people with various needs in my hometown community throughout their lives. I promised God I would give back to others when my family was grown as a means of serving Him & honoring my parents. In addition, the only legacies I want to leave my own daughters are serving God and caring for others. It is because of these reasons that I volunteer at Kid’s Hope. The child I mentor, and her family are the added blessings I receive. Weekly she brings to me a fresh perspective of a young life in a very complicated blended family. My appreciation for her mom’s struggles and decisions opens my narrowly focused life to the ‘real’ world folks around us are experiencing. Their struggles provide topics of prayer and ideas for campaigning for needs for her family. I am realistic and understand my influence will not change or alter her life. But God can. It is my job to supply the opportunity for Him to speak to her heart.”

Mentor Story

Our mentor has been the most amazing person that came into our lives. She ‘adopted’ our family and made Christmas the best ever. My daughter gained a great friend and mentor. We are blessed to have her.
