LANGSTON ELEMENTARY

MENTORING...the children NEED YOU!

We need your help as we serve our upcoming generation of leaders! Can you spare 30 minutes of your lunch hour one day a week? We are looking for adults to go to Langston Elementary (which is just 1 mile from our church) and have lunch with a Pre-K to 4th grade child one day a week. By doing this consistently, you will show the child that God loves them through your support and caring spirit. No experience is needed and there is no teaching involved! These children just need caring adults that will be there to listen and to talk to them about how things are going in their lives. Research confirms what we instinctively know to be true – that a caring adult can make a big difference in a child's future. Mentors serve as role models, advocates, friends and advisors. Studies show that mentors help children augment social skills and emotional well-being, improve cognitive skills and plan for the future. Mentoring also results in better attendance at school, lowers dropout rates and decreases involvement with drugs and violent behavior. In short, mentoring works!
