Providing TRAC Campers age 13-18 with an opportunity to be mentored by a TRAC staff member throughout the school year, to build positive memories and build relationships with other campers and staff in the mentoring program.

When a teen goes through FHIM Teen Mentoring

they will build a lasting relationship with their mentor, who will seek to be a friend, encourager, a good listener and strive to build confidence and self-esteem throughout their teenage years.  Their mentor will be a safe adult in their life, whom they can learn to trust and rely on.

WHY I VOLUNTEER

Tesorae

 Volunteer since 2014

Working with these kids is the best and hardest thing I have ever done. I watch them grow and change and know all the hard work is worth it. I have seen massive growth in several kids throughout the years and it’s is inspiring. I love serving Jesus through serving these kids and teens.

I volunteer because GOD MOVES in Fostering Hope. This ministry is a front row seat to watch God work miracles in tangible ways, see His People be the hands and feet of Jesus, watch reality and faith intersect. These kids, their experiences, and their resiliency have changed my life.

I volunteer as an obedience to God. It give me the opportunity to share my heart with others and be able to lift up and encourage those who need it.
