Faith-Based Mentoring: Engaging with your Community (Webinar)
December 20, 2018
Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), U.S. Department of Justice
MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership
1:00-2:15 p.m. ET
Faith-based mentoring offers an opportunity for church ministries, nonprofits, and other religious entities to engage and build relationships with members of their community.
This particular form of mentoring can raise questions about unsolicited evangelism particularly among non-religious stakeholders and those of different faiths, sustainability, and general operational questions.
During this webinar we will hear from leaders in the faith-based mentoring sphere as they share methods and considerations for recruiting, screening and training staff and volunteers.
They will also speak about bridging the gap between secular and faith-based organizations, and how to sustain as an organization.
We will hear from a faith-based mentoring program about how they engage young people and their families, as well as the community.
Attendees will learn more about how they have built relationships with external stakeholders that have led to operating a sustainable program with non-volunteer employees.
This webinar will be equally as beneficial for secular programs, schools, and other businesses as they learn how to engage potential mentors and other volunteers who come from ministries of faith.
