always good to end with a cute pro-men­tor­ing song!


One of the best answers to ‘Why Men­tor?’ I heard at the meet­ing for the ReCity train­ing event was ‘I see a need in my city—It’s up to me to work on the solu­tion.’

The ReCity orga­ni­za­tion won’t be recre­at­ing things that oth­er orga­ni­za­tions in the Tri­an­gle are already doing well… they will just come along­side and help— train­ing men­tors to be involved and shin­ing light on what’s being done to help with dis­con­nect­ed youth in our city.

The pro­gram grows out of a 4 year suc­cess­ful project at the Sum­mit Church called GoMen­tor. The new spin­off ReCity was formed after hear­ing a call from our city of the need for more career focused ideas, giv­ing stu­dents a view of what’s pos­si­ble in their lives and a path to get there. Twen­ty-two great orga­ni­za­tions like the YMCA of the Tri­an­gle and the Sal­va­tion Army are already on board.

With this newest group at the meet­ing, the pro­gram now has trained about 200 active men­tors.

How big is the need?

The Sal­va­tion Army’s James John­son says ‘I can use as many men­tors as you can give me!’ and esti­mates are that we could be involved in the lives of 800+ kids in the Tri­an­gle, if we just had the men­tors.
