REWRITE THE FATHERLESS STORY

In the United States alone, there are some 25 million youth growing up fatherless. This is a personal tragedy and a collective epidemic.  Countless statistics tell us that children from fatherless homes are more likely to: drop out of school, become teenage parents, join gangs and experiment with drugs. The fatherless story is not ending well.

We believe this can change...

Our President, John Sowers often says, "This generation has been wounded the most in relationships - it is in relationships where the healing must begin." We believe that mentoring is a way to rewrite the fatherless story. Mentors are the 'quiet heroes' of the movement.

At The Mentoring Project, we inspire and equip people to become mentors. How can you mentor? Get our Mentor Toolkit or attend a city-wide Rewrite Mentor Training. Or have us come to your city to consult and conduct a training.

Can't mentor right now? Consider sponsoring a mentor. For $25/month - we will recruit and train a mentor for an at-risk child. Join us … today!

Mentor Moments

We believe "children aspire to be what they see." So we create new experiences, encourage children to dream and think about their future. Mentor Moments have included: taking groups to the White House,  sporting events, museums and the zoo, backstage at concerts, hiking and dinosaur digs. Mentor Moments vary in price, but the average cost us $1000. If you are interested in sponsoring a mentor moment, please email us: advocate@thementoringproject.org
