Become a Mentor

Children who grow up in difficult situations need
to experience love that is poured out, over time,
within the context of a healthy relationship.

Long Island Youth Mentoring

Long Island Youth Mentoring helps the Church in providing a safe and effective ministry to fatherless youth. We have done so for forty years.

Mission

Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world. James 1:27
God shares His call to visit and minister His love to the fatherless 40 times in His word.

Mission

God shares His call to visit and minister His love to the fatherless 40 times in His word.

Auction

The Harvest Auction is a once a year event that is designed to fill God’s storehouse with the financial resources that are necessary to fulfill His mission to the fatherless of Long Island.

Auction Nov 12th

Bidding opens for the silent auction on Saturday, November 5th, at 6 pm. The auction dinner and live auction will start at 6 pm on November 12th. The silent auction will be held at the event and online, but you will want to attend to bid on the live auction items.

AUCTION INFORMATION and REGISTRATION

Why

The answer to the problems caused by fatherlessness are not found by passing a law or passing out more checks. A problem that is caused by the loss of a primary relationship – a missing Dad — must be addressed and solved, by the establishment of new, positive personal relationships.

Why

Long Island Youth Mentoring recruits healthy Christians to consider if God is calling them to a mission field of one fatherless child. Then we provide a screening and training process. This helps prospective mentors determining if this is a part of God’s call. If so, we match them with one child who has asked for a mentor. They meet for 2-4 hours each week for a year.  FATHERLESSNESS

Values

The best way to communicate God’s love, truth, and righteousness on this mission field is through personal one-to-one relationships. We depend on the Spirit of God to help us discern people’s core needs. We seek to do so in a way that encourages dependence on God…

Values

• …and assist in meeting them. We seek to do so in a way that encourages dependence on God, His Church, and His biblical mandate to work to sustain ourselves and to serve others.

An Orphan’s Story

August 10th, 2012|Stories|

On one recent, especially beautiful day, Linda was hoping to hike with Jaclyn (an orphan living in a group home). But to be totally truthful, she did not expect to be able to leave the building. Linda was having a bad day already and dreaded the idea of being holed up in that dark room, again, playing yet another game of Yahtzee where the sound of dice echoes endlessly around the cinderblock walls. She wondered why she had even planned anything as she waited for Jaclyn to appear down that long, cold hallway.

88 L.I. Boys Wait for a Mentor

I was at my church and community harvest party and it seems like all the moms were serving and the dads were walking the kids around to have fun. I must admit at first it felt good to see that many dads with their kids. Everyone enjoyed the music, dads were showing off at the ring the bell with the sledgehammer game, and the kids were eating their fair share of candy.

The Call To Christian Mentoring

July 24th, 2019|Stories|

Thirty years ago I stood on the sidewalk and watched a home burn while waiting for the Firemen who had never been called. I did not know it then, but a five year-old girl was also waiting for rescue that came too late. Today 150 children wait for a Christian mentor to show them the way out of a toxic life. This time I am not waiting, and I hope you will join me.

I’d be Blind Not To See God’s Plan in My Life!

August 6th, 2012|Stories|

Little did anyone who was at that Warren Christie meeting dream that this would be the birth of Youth for Christ which has contributed to or birthed countless other ministries like Dr. Graham’s ministry and even Long Island Youth Mentoring. It was just one meeting. ‘Anyone can count the seeds in an apple, but only God can count the apples in a seed.’

Unspoken

August 8th, 2012|Stories|

Thankfully, the Lord has called Sherry*, Layell’s pen pal mentor, to read her letters, to pray and plead her case before the Lord, to ask Him for the words and then respond to Layell in love in her next letter. This scene is played out over and over again on a weekly basis as the love of Christ extends into the state prison system to young men and women who may otherwise never have the opportunity to hear about Jesus.

I sent the following text to one of our mentors: This is the reply I received: Here are the details: Roger & Chris are the most unlikely of pairs. Roger is all gray-haired, Jesus loving wisdom. Chris is all things youthful, including…

I HAVE DEAMONS, Katie
Letter from Jail

I’ve been having a rough time lately more with myself then anything else really; my mom and family are well which is a blessing. This prison time is not easy, at this time in my life I would truly like to do the things that are positive in . . .

A LETTER FROM JAIL, Matthew Barrow

When a child grows up in a dysfunctional home, he knows nothing else but to repeat that pattern. When a Christian mentor prays up and shows up 2-4 hours a week, the child experiences God’s love. Within that love, a new family legacy is modeled and made available. Will you consider this life-changing call?
