Be the Change – Become a Mentor!

Good mentors are willing to take time to get to know their mentees, to learn new things that are important to their mentees, and even to be changed by their relationship. Accept the challenges and rewards of mentoring a young person and you will both give and receive the benefits that will last a lifetime.

Mentoring News . . .

CIS of Caldwell County currently has about 60 students who do not have mentors for the 2018-2019 school year. Every summer CISCC adds 60 – 6th graders to the CISCC classroom. Each one of these students qualifies to have a mentor and to build a one-on-one relationship with a caring adult.

Fewer and fewer people in our community are stepping up to be that set of helping hands to make a difference in the life of a child. You can help to get more mentors to volunteer.

CISCC challenges you, your family, your friends, your neighbors, your place of employment, and your church to get involved in mentoring.

It takes one person to make a difference in the life of a child. Be that person!
