Are you thankful for a person in your life that offered kindness and support when you needed it? Would you like to be that person in the life of someone earnestly trying to improve their circumstances? Our next “Moving UP” program starts in January of 2018 and we are looking for mentors for our next class.
Moving UP is a 16 week program where clients investigate the impact poverty has on their lives and what it takes to move from just getting by to moving up. The goal is to help them transform their lives to be more stable, self-directed and self-sustaining. The members of the program have chosen to attend evening classes exploring past barriers and creating new successes. We need mentors to offer support and encouragement during the program and the months following. (You are NOT instructors during the program) The mentors help the client explore in detail their future story. Mentors are a sounding board, a cheerleader and a listener. They provide support, encouragement and connection to resources, and they guide the client in implementing their personal plan. The relationship can be in person or via phone conversations.Mentor training will be provided in November of 2017.
Are you interested in making a profound impact through words, care and encouragement to a motivated member of this program? If so- please email: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
