Summary of Mentoring
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
- John 14:6 NIV
I Choose Life Ministries (ICL Ministries) provides mentoring based on Christian principles for underserved students located in Philadelphia & Delaware County, PA. ICL Ministries helps young men and women to explore and understand their purpose in life and equip them with knowledge, skills and resources to pursue their aspirations.
ICL Ministries strives to provide one-to-one mentorship to:
Promote positive social behavior
Deepen bonds with friends and family members
Increase academic performance/reduce truancy
Unlock each student’s God-given abilities to fulfill their purpose
Mentors are selected, screened, and matched by I Choose Life Ministries staff. Matches are made through shared goals and interests of the mentor/mentee
Mentors are expected to meet with their mentees biweekly during the academic school year
Example activities include: review of school attendance and academic performance, discussing relationships with other children and siblings, learning new skills and developing a hobby
At the conclusion of the academic school year, mentors and mentees have the option of continuing their relationship with various volunteering opportunities and other summer activities or conclude their match in the program
