Benefits of Being a Mentor

Here are a few…

  • Increased self-esteem
  • Better interpersonal skills
  • Improved relations with family, friends and co-workers
  • Heightened compassion for others
  • Greater sense of accomplishment and pride

Churches that get involved with mentoring can see..

  • Expanded community outreach and involvement
  • Enhanced public image
  • More volunteerism within the church – most of our mentors get more involved in their local church, not less involved.

Most of all mentors get to make a difference in the life of one child at the same time serving the Lord Jesus Christ.

If you are interested in mentoring – contact Serve Our Youth Network if you live in Central Iowa.  If you live outside of Central Iowa please check out to find a mentoring program near you.

    Thanks for posting this information. I lead the Tutor/Mentor Connection based in Chicago and host quite a bit of tutoring/mentoring information on our web site. We also host a conference in Chicago every six months and the next is May 29 and 30. I hope you’ll attend if you can, or join us in on-line networking forums, such as at
