Service-Learning Proposal Description

1.

Briefly describe the project and the community need to be addressed.

Answer We are looking for Christ-centered individuals that are interested in mentoring a youth facing adversity in the Chippewa Valley. There is a 10 month commitment, but our hopes is that you will build a lasting, trusting relationship with your mentee.

2.

What is the mission of the agency or organization?

Answer Tandem shares life changing hope with Chippewa Valley youth through the support of Christ-centered mentors.

3.

What skills are required for this project? 

Answer Good listening and communication skills with a compassionate and dedicated heart for the hurting.

4.

What are the objectives for the student learning and service?

Answer You'll be developing awareness and gaining a deeper understanding of the youth in our community facing adversity. Some of the adversities that the youth are facing included having a lower socioeconomic status, parents incarcerated, alcohol and drug abuse, and peer pressure. You'll be able to have an active personal role in civic engagement through having the role of a mentor for one of these youths facing adversity. The role of this Mentorship is to help the mentee see there's a better way of living which we believe is to have a relationship with Jesus Christ.

5.

What are the availability requirements for the student?

Answer Tandem is a community-based mentoring program which means you can meet your mentee anywhere within the Chippewa Valley on a schedule that you two determine. It only takes 1 hour a week to make a difference in a youth's life.
