Become a Mentor
You Can Change the Future of Our Community
How can I help our community in a meaningful way when my time is limited?
We feel the call to serve our community and help those in need. However, our personal responsibilities prevent us from devoting as much time as we might like.
Given limited time, can I still make an impact in the lives of others?
With Garden Pathways’ Mentoring, your gift of one hour per week can change a family forever.
Hope is a stranger to many in our community who only know poverty, abandonment, and life-dominating challenges. Your investment of twenty-four hours as a mentor can bring the guidance, encouragement, and hope needed to change the course of their lives. Garden Pathways’ Mentoring offers clearly defined opportunities for mentoring that make our community stronger.
I’m not an expert. How can I help?
You do not need to be an expert to be a mentor. Mentors are ordinary people who care about others. Mentors guide and encourage. They share wisdom and encouragement from their personal life experience. Mentoring utilizes many of the daily skills that you take for granted — if you can shop, get and keep a job, parent a child, or build a budget, then you could be a great mentor.
Garden Pathways will support you with experts. As a mentor, you will receive training and have access to a wide-array of field-tested mentoring curriculum guides. You also will have the ongoing support of mentoring consultants, qualified professionals who can provide their expertise when the needs of participants exceed the scope of your personal knowledge.
