The positive influence a mentor can have on a child is tremendous.
Most of us have had a mentor of some kind… a supervisor, a boss, a teacher, or a coach who impacted our lives. They acted as delegators, role models, inspirational motivators, cheerleaders, policy enforcers, advocates, and friends. As a mentor, you have the opportunity to have the same influence. As we begin our mentoring relationships; exploring values, education, interests and long term goals, we will begin to bond with our mentees and through this process we will learn more about ourselves too. Mentoring doesn’t just affect the child, but it is a shared opportunity for learning and growth for both. The rewards are many.
We also want our children to experience healing, restoration, and reconciliation with their parents who are incarcerated which will also, inevitably, strengthen the family unit. We insure, that inside the prison, we will work to achieve this in a loving and trusting environment. We want our children to live a healthy Godly lifesyle and pursue a relationship with their incarcerated parent. This mentoring process will be a journey, but one worth taking.
Our mentoring program will work in conjunction with the programs offered through EnVision College.
