1:5® Circles of CARE
Village Christian has created an innovative, research-based initiative to surround our students with the caring adults they need to thrive in their adolescence and to emerge into adulthood emotionally healthy, convinced of their positive identity, and living a strong faith.
This is why YOU matter as a FIVE Mentor!
Research shows us that one of the most important assets a contemporary adolescent student needs is a network of caring and attentive adults who have that student(s)'s best interests at heart.
In addition to parents, these adults provide a Circle of Care providing answers to three foundational questions:
- Who am I?
- Where do I belong?
- Do I and my choices matter?
But let’s not over complicate it. Being a FIVE mentor is about being present, listening, sharing, having fun, and showing the student that they are loved and valued. Let’s begin with The Basics (click the link to get started).
