A mentor is someone that walks along you and your family to help your child reach his or her God-given potential.

All of our Gospel Village mentors come from local churches and go through a detailed application, training and background check process to ensure your child is paired with a godly, trustworthy and safe mentor. Once a mentor pairing is made, the mentor will stay actively involved in your child’s life, staying in touch at least four times a month and meeting in person at least twice a month. Mentors commit for at least a year, but often build relationships that last a lifetime.

Interested in pairing your child with a godly mentor? Please fill out the application. If you have questions you may contact your school counselor or email us at gospelvillage@thementoringalliance.com.
