Thanks to our School Partnerships, we get the opportunity to invest in students at five elementary schools in Central Kentucky. Southland is making a difference in the cities of Lexington, Nicholasville, Danville and we now have an opportunity in Georgetown! Mentors show up one day a week for 30 minutes to spend time with an elementary aged kid to invest in them, listen and answer questions. It doesn’t require a degree or any special certification. Your life doesn’t have to be in perfect order. But you do need to be present. God will take care of the rest for both you and your student. Your life will be forever changed in the process.
One mentor said, “I walk away each week grateful for the childlike trust that children have. I walk away remembering that my ‘problems’ are not so important. I walk away with a lighter spirit and a greater understanding of why Jesus loves His children.”
There is just no substitute for the gift mentors receive from hanging out with students. There are always more kids than there are mentors willing to step up.
If you’ve been thinking about mentoring, it’s time to step forward. Join us this school year as we eliminate the mentor waiting list! Sign up at our Mentors Page today!
