Mentoring & Education
Partnering Pals Mentoring Program
Heart & Home ministries has a heart for mentoring and providing educational services for at-risk children both locally and internationally.
Locally, we fulfill our purpose through our Partnering Pals Mentoring Program with Advantage Academy ISD, a charter school with 3 locations in North Texas. We provide students of Advantage Academy with a caring adult who spends time with them, two times per month, at the school to help with homework, discuss social issues, or just provide a listening ear.
Mentoring is a one-on-one relationship between a younger person and an older person who provides consistent support and guidance.
Mentors have always been recognized as some of the most important influences in a young person’s life.
Mentor’s roles generally:
Help young people achieve educational or career goals.
Enhance young people’s awareness of and belief in their own potential.
In Honduras, we are helping Advantage Academy establish a global partnership with public schools in Honduras. We will also be working to raise funds to complete a gymnasium and two little league baseball fields at Kids Ark International Youth Camp.
