Informational meeting for Kids Hope USA Mentoring program
Sunday July 10; 10:00-10:30 am
You have an opportunity to change a child's life. Become a mentor to a struggling student at Terrace Elementary this fall! Show the love of Christ by building relationships!
Come to the meeting or email Lvanderstreek@ridgelife.org to learn more!
THE OPPORTUNITY TO IMPACT CHILDREN:
Kids Hope USA touches children's hearts through mentoring. Data for students who met with a Kids Hope USA mentor for just one year showed:
65% improved in educational success.
79% improved in socio/emotional competency.
56% improved in attitude toward risky behavior.
The chance for caring adults to provide students with one-on-one attention at school is priceless. Imagine if every elementary school in the country offered students who need a listening ear the chance to be a part of the Kids Hope USA program; what would schools look like? Answer: They would be filled with children who thrive and excel in every aspect of life.
