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.

AUCTION INFORMATION

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.

88 L.I. Boys Wait for a Mentor

|Be A Mentor, Stories, Support LIYM, Why Mentor a Child|

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.

How Many Dads Are We Able To Buy?

|Stories, Why Mentor a Child|

A Christian school was preparing to have Larry Raab, a leading member of our staff, as the chapel speaker. The school was working with the children to raise money for this ministry as a mission project. The young children were told that this is a ministry to the fatherless. One sensitive youngster understood the problem better than most and asked: “How many dads are we going to be able to buy?”

Dad’s Home

|News, Stories|

I was about a mile from my house when I saw a boy who looked to be 10 years-old shooting hoops in the street. I watched from a distance as he retrieved the ball, again and again, oblivious to the stranger who was now only one house-length away. In the next instant, a white Toyota pulled into the driveway and the boy, leaving the ball in the street, darts up the driveway and is at the driver’s side door before the car had completely stopped.

Jesus is the Source of Love and Hope

|Stories|

Mrs. Ramsey is also very depressed and has had many serious health issues as well as financial crises. Her Area Director has been there to encourage and pray with and for her; to exhort her to keep on keeping on not only for her children’s sake, but because Jesus loves her and died for her too. It is truly amazing to see what God can do through friendships that point to Jesus as the source of love and hope that has been experienced.

A mentor is a window for a child, to view personal life possibilities and to see their value in God’s eyes. As Joanna* drives them off to their weekly destination each week, Shelly* will often pour out her heart from the back seat. Her aches, disappointments, hurts, and hopes go tumbling up to the driver’s seat, reaching Joanna’s ears and heart.

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…

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?
