Description

Important: Please do not apply to this opportunity through christianvolunteering.org ... instead, to apply or learn more, please visit this URL: https://tmm.io You can begin mentoring online in minutes! You have more experience than you realize. Think back a few years... What was it like when you were growing up? How did you deal with your parents? Conflict with friends? How did you get through insecurity? Wasn't it good to find someone to talk to, even if they didn't solve your problems? What do you know about God today that you did not know when you were younger? You are a wealth of knowledge. Did you know that your past experiences are an incredible gateway to spiritual conversations? Online mentors come alongside others and listen with God's heart, and respond as the Holy Spirit leads. We'll train you step by step, and you can respond to as many messages each week as you have time for. Teens are at the cusp of adulthood but the majority of their influence comes from peers. As a teen mentor, you have the ability to become like one of those peers and walk alongside of them. Teen mentoring provides an incredible opportunity for followers of Jesus to come alongside teens who want to talk about things that really matter to them. We receive 1500+ messages from teens every month. Even with almost 1000 mentors worldwide it can be difficult to keep up. That's where you come in. People are searching and we need your help to make sure someone is there to walk alongside, listen, and respond with compassion, ultimately sharing the hope of Christ. Online mentoring through our website is easy, safe and effective. As a mentor you get to choose the types of questions that match your experience and you can set how many questions you want to receive each week. Community Leaders are there to help and our software will protect your privacy (you never have to give out your personal email address). Hugh, one of our mentors had this to say about his experience: "I love it. My wife passed away last Christmas so I?m alone now in the world and the mentoring of other people really has been a life saver for me. It has helped so much. I prayed for a ministry I could become involved with and God certainly answered my prayer with The Life Project and Power to Change." Mentoring is an excellent way to put into practice all the things you're learning on this life journey. Change a life...become an online mentor!
