Would you like to make a difference in your child’s life and/or in your community?

You can help your child by getting your child involved in the RHDC Youth Mentoring Program.  In this program your child will develop positive relationships that will have a direct and lasting effect on their lives and on our community.

Vision: All children and young people achieve success in life through Christ.

Mission: Provide children and young people who are facing adversity with strong, enduring and professionally supported Christian relationships that bring lasting change for the better in their lives.

Accountability: By partnering with parents or guardians volunteers from the RHDC become accountable for each child or young person in the program.  This typically achieves:

  • Higher aspirations, greater confidence and better relationships
  • Avoidance of risky behaviors
  • Educational success

It can make a difference!

National research* has shown that positive relationships between mentors and their mentees have a direct and measurable impact on the lives of the mentees.  Typically children participating in our program are:

  • More confident
  • Better able to get along with their families
  • 46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs
  • 27% less likely to begin using alcohol
  • 52% less likely to skip school
