One of the most satisfying opportunities and one where we need the most committed volunteers is in the role of mentor to the program participants. Each Christian Women's Job Corps student is assigned a mentor who commits to a six-month relationship with the student. Throughout the six months, the mentor and mentee must meet a total of 14-1 hour visits and have 14 phone calls.

This piece of the CWJC program is truly the heart and soul of the ministry. It is so important for each participant to have someone she can call on for encouragement and support after the official program ends. This relationship helps the woman keep the commitments she made while in the program and gives her the support she needs to make real and lasting changes in her life.

Principle Responsibilities of a Mentor:

  1. Consistently prays for assigned mentee.
  2. Contacts mentee at least once a week.
  3. Has regular Bible study with mentee.
  4. Set both long term and short term goals with mentee.
  5. Encourages accountability and follow through behavior by monitoring mentee's long term and short term goals.
  6. Assists mentee in fidning information needed to reach goals.
  7. Promotes mentee's self-esteem.

All mentors must attend Mentor Training before being paired with a student. By attending Mentor Training, the mentor learns more about Christian Women's Job Corps as well as the specifics involved in a mentoring relationship.

After being paired with a mentee, the mentor must attend a mid-semester meeting and submit a monthly report to their Mentor Coordinator.
