What Is Required... A West Tenneessee Summit on Mentoring

“What is required…”

A West Tennessee Summit on Mentoring

More and more communities believe that mentoring is an important method to encourage the successful development of young people and provide one solution to the problems of youth – like disrupted families, crime, drug use, and teen pregnancy… BUT, how do you build and sustain a mentoring program?

More and more communities believe that their schools have a role to play to improve the quality of life for students and their families… BUT, how do you do more in an era of reduced budgets, school reform and high stakes testing?

More and more communities believe their churches and faith organizations should be working to help young people, strengthen families and increase well-being… BUT, how do faith organizations get a chance to serve?

Since 1998, more than 70 churches and faith organizations have joined into the Micah Association – a collaboration that has succeeded in building mentoring programs  to serve 24 schools in Richmond VA.

This conference showcases the lessons learned from the Micah Association, and how those lessons can guide the growth of successful opportunities in the communities of West Tennessee.

Why faith communities as partners?

Schools and children need dedicated, concerned support that people of faith understand.  This is not a temporary or minor concern for persons of faith, but rather an essential part of human community.  Faith organizations can recognize the need to nurture of children and know how to respond.  Churches, synagogues and mosques themselves are permanent community institutions and can provide steady support to other permanent community institutions.  The faith community is committed to overcoming barriers of race, jurisdiction, economics, and class.

Presenter for the summit is Mieko Manuel-Timmons, Program Director for the Micah Initiative.

“What does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?” - Micah 6:8

ü  Pastors, youth ministers – clergy from every faith tradition
