The Value of Mentoring

YFC Mentoring connects trained adults with teenagers for weekly one on one meetings and programs designed to help them make good choices and establish a solid foundation in their lives. At its most basic level, mentoring helps because it guarantees a young person that there is someone who cares about them. Our mentors are passionate about sharing the love of God with their mentees.
