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. 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.
The Ridge has been chosen to partner with Heritage Elementary School to provide mentoring for students in grades kindergarten through fifth.
Covid Note: To start the 2020 school year, mentors will be pen pals with students at Heritage Elementary. Mentors will write notes of encouragement each week to students who may be struggling in the school setting. Please consider supporting a student through your written words!
