Kids Hope Mentoring
Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them; for the kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these.
What are we?
Kids Hope is a mentoring program between a local church and a local primary school, in our case Ringwood North Primary School.
The program involves one to one contact by the mentor with a student for one hour a week during school time.
It is about the student and mentor becoming friends in a caring relationship by sharing activities together. Mentors are linked to children who could do with a good, reliable and supporting friend.
The secret is basically just turning up for your child.
Mentoring improves a student’s abilities in general health and wellbeing, social acceptance and confidence. Some may be distracted from time to time, but they LOVE the contact and it is a rewarding experience for the mentors as well.
When does it happen?
Meeting time with a student is arranged between the teacher and mentor
Who is it for?
Anyone who loves involvement with children and has the time available. Training is required and provided as is a ‘Working With Children Check’
