Rewards of Being a Sponsor/Mentor

There are few things more rewarding than helping change the course of a young person’s life.

As a Shepherds Sponsor/Mentor, you commit to sharing our time and experience with your student. You also commit to contribute towards the four-year educational expense of your student’s high school education.

The sense of accomplishment and pride is immeasurable for a Shepherds Mentor when he or she sees their student march to the stage to receive their high school diploma and hear their college plans for the following year announced.

Like everything else, when we give of ourselves, we often reap more than we sow!

“When I heard about this opportunity, I thought, I can’t change the world, but maybe I can get involved in something in my own back yard and change a person’s life.”

Shepherds Mentor/Sponsors gain as much as they give with the reward of seeing their student reach beyond their own expectations.

“Being a mentor isn’t necessarily just about school and the schoolwork, sometimes it’s about sharing little things in your life’s experience.”
