How are mentors identified, vetted and deployed to help the families?
Mentors are identified through the National Ministry’s volunteer network, as well as through local church partnerships and relationships. They are required to undergo an application process, including a pastor’s recommendation, and they must sign the confidentiality policy which includes our child protection policy. Mentors complete an annual training before engaging with children, which includes child protection training, the training on the use of scriptural materials and mentorship best practices. National ministries then determine how Mentors and children are matched.
