Youth Mentor Teams

Good foundations in the faith are necessary to avoid the confusion and the pull of the world around us. Mentoring creates a positive impact in youth’s lives and helps them not only understand and learn skills needed in life, but help them understand themselves and God better, and builds necessary relationships. 

Youth Mentor Teams help to build the youth’s future and faith foundation through walking with them in formation programs.

These teams work directly with youth in varying age groups.

  • Do you enjoy interacting with kids/youth?
  • Do you like being a part of forming lives and futures?
  • Do you enjoy bringing your faith and faith teaching to youth in creative ways?
  • Can you spare 30-40 minutes a week after or during Mass?
  • Can you spare a few hours for retreats and special formation events?
