SpringSpirit Mentoring

  • 5 people are interested

The SpringSpirit Mentoring Program is designed to help our participants realize their potential in Christ and see the world outside of their circumstances. We want to show them that they can be successful and we believe mentors can show them how just by giving their time and love.

The SpringSpirit Mentoring Program helps to support the growth of our students on the fields, in school, and in life. We need people who will show up for these kids at least once a month. The mentoring visit may entail something as simple as coming out to our fields and throwing the ball around, playing basketball, craft projects, or going out for a meal. The visit may also include a trip to a museum or church, or a visit to one's place of business. The goal is enrichment - to show these children a larger slice of the world he or she lives in.

We recruit caring, Christian adults to serve as mentors, encouragers, role models, and friends. We require all mentors to complete an application that is available on our website as well as complete a background check and online abuses trainings. SpringSpirit's mission is to provide pathways for youth to realize life opportunities through sports, education, and mentoring programs based on Christian principles.
