WHAT WE DO
The Mentoring Project (TMP) is an advocacy and training organization that serves as a liaison between faith communities and matching agencies to provide mentors for fatherless youth. Through dynamic church trainings, national mentor recruitment, and the creation of sustainable mentoring communities, The Mentoring Project seeks to rewrite the story of the fatherless generation.
In keeping with the mission, TMP establishes relationships with local and national faith communities, partner organizations, and matching agencies to facilitate the creation of sustainable mentoring communities. Our organization does not function as a matching agency. The Mentoring Project’s model assists faith communities in establishing sustainable mentoring communities that will provide mentors for the children waiting to be mentored that can be found through well-established matching agencies such as Big Brothers Big Sisters.
OUR MISSION – END THE LIST
The Mentoring Project seeks to respond to the American crisis of fatherlessness by inspiring and equipping faith communities to mentor fatherless youth.
Our goal for our hometown of Portland specifically is to end the waiting list made up of 1000 fatherless boys. We will do this by training up mentors in faith communities and finally seeing the church stand in the gap on the issue of fatherlessness. By focussing on mentoring, we believe that the American church could effectively shut down prisons, end school dropouts, curb youth suicide, and reduce homelessness for a large number of boys affected by the fatherless epidemic.
