Kids Hope USA


One simple thing will make a big difference in the life of an at-risk child: One-on-one, positive attention from a responsible, caring adult.  

Kids Hope USA develops these one-on-one relationships through the creation of church-school partnerships that pair church members with at-risk kids in supportive, mentoring relationships.

Kids Hope USA mentors spend just one hour per week, reading, talking, playing and listening to a child at school. By helping the child feel loved and valued, they help that child to learn, grow and succeed.

You can change a life…and that’s no small change.  

What do I do as a Kids Hope mentor?
A mentor meets with his/her student once a week to spend time on schoolwork, playing games or talking.

What is the time commitment?
After being trained, mentors are expected to meet with their child for an hour, once a week, for the duration of one school year. The mentoring hour takes place during school hours at the elementary schools with which we've partnered in Strongsville and Brunswick.

What if I can’t volunteer during the school day?
There are other opportunities to volunteer for those who cannot help during a school day.  The mentors each have a partner whose responsibility is to pray for them and their child. There are also opportunities to help with the end of the year celebration.
