Invite a VIP Mentor into the life of a child you know
There are opportunities that every child should have within their reach. VIP helps expose children to activities that stimulate growth and learning in a fun way through sustainable, meaningful mentoring relationships.
All VIP Mentors are volunteers, unpaid individuals that have made a commitment to help a child. They are caring people, busy community members, and people searching for a way to give back.
The Role of the Mentor
To commit the time and effort it takes to develop a supportive relationship.
To be a friend by taking the time to listen and give thoughtful caring advice when requested.
To be someone who notices the little things things and uses phrases such as, “I am proud of you”.
To be patient and realize that time is needed to build a relationship.
