Event description
The Amaris Ministries Foster Youth Mentor Program will host an informational presentation for anyone interested in becoming a mentor.

About this Event

The Amaris Ministries Foster Youth Mentor Program exists to meet the varying relational, social, and emotional needs of Imperial Valley foster youth. This program will provide friendship, guidance, and stability to foster children ages six to eighteen, through individual, one-on-one mentorships.

Amaris Ministries Foster Youth Mentoring Program provides committed Christians throughout the Valley an opportunity to mentor local foster children. Each foster child who participates in this program will be matched with one Christian mentor who commits to meet with that child for a few hours each week, for eighteen months. The mentors can then meet the emotional and social needs of their foster child, providing a sense of normalcy to the child’s life. Studies show that foster children who have an active mentor in their life are less likely to engage in drug and alcohol use, and are more likely to make positive life choices, do well in school, and pursue a higher education.

Amaris Ministries will provide training for all mentors about how to engage children who have experienced hurt and trauma, so that our mentors are well equipped to meet key needs and establish a relationship that is built on trust. This is a great ministry opportunity for any committed Christian who has a heart for children, teens, mentoring, or foster care. We believe we can make a difference, one life at a time, right here in our Valley!
