For the past five months, we’ve been going into North Shore Academy as YFC volunteers. Over the last term, we sat in classes, doing the best we could to assist the teachers where needed. While we were thankful to have a presence in the school, we certainly craved the opportunity for more intentional relationship building.
We are thrilled to announce that God has answered this prayer and opened an incredible door through a mentoring program that has launched due to the relationship built between North Shore Academy and Youth For Christ. This kind of trust was undoubtedly formed through the seed planting of the YFC workers who came before us and volunteered in North Shore every day for years.
This week we started mentoring in groups and one-on-one!! How exciting is that?! The academy’s head of disciplinary hand-picked the students who she felt needed mentoring the most. We will be meeting with them every week. It is an amazing privilege and also a great responsibility. Please be praying for the young people that God ultimately paired each of us with this year. Thanks!
