Many organizations have a long and lengthy process becoming a volunteer. At the Aspire Movement we have leveraged technology and best practices to make on boarding very streamlined. Please see the instructions below if you desire to learn more about becoming a mentor at one of our schools or ministry partners.
The Role of a Mentor:
- Walk with a young person and develop an on-going, one-to one relationship
- Serve as a role model, advocate, advisor and friend
- Be a good listener
- Be respectful of differences
- Meet with your student face-to-face at least twice monthly
- To communicate with your student via phone call, text, email, or letter at least twice monthly
- Pray for your student on a regular basis
- Make a 2 year commitment with the hopes that you will continue until they graduate high school (Long term commitment is not a requirement at Grace House-we'll explain more at training)
