"Research shows that children who thrive in the midst of extraordinary challenges have at least one non-parent adult who provides consistent emotional support." Jean Rhodes, Stand by Me: The Risks and Rewards of Mentoring Today's Youth
We hope you will join us at the Youth Wise Gala and help expand youth mentoring in our region. Be a hero! This October 27th, 2017 at Seattle Pacific University.
Youth Wise Mentoring aims to bring about positive holistic change in each young person participating in our program. We do this by providing caring adult mentors who are there for them, no matter the challenge, difficult situation, or life question.
Youth Wise Mentoring works in two ways:
Matching Agency: We are a matching agency that matches kids with mentors and provides ongoing mentor training and supervision.
Mentoring Alliance: We train churches and organizations how to adopt the Youth Wise Mentoring model so they can become successful matching mentoring agencies. (Available in November, 2018)
