overall vision

This is really simple. Our hope for our students is two-fold:

-That students would encounter the love of God

-That students would discover what it means to be a follower of Christ.

 

We understand and believe that this happens in the context of community. We are not meant to be on this journey alone.  We believe in two intentional approaches to carrying out our vision: mentoring relationships and environments (intentional space and places) that allow them to keep uncovering what it means to be a follower of Jesus.  Mentors are there to accompany students on the journey and guide them along the way.

UR mentors

UR Students (URJH and URHS) is built on a mentoring model.  Each junior high or high school student is paired with one young adult mentor.  At times there might be exceptions, pairing two students with one mentor.   Throughout the school year, we intentionally venture into different spaces and places (we call them environments) with students as they discover what it means to be a follower of Jesus.  Mentors are there to accompany students on the journey and guide them along the way.  Mentors will invest their time participating in shared experiences, actively listening, building trust, establishing a relationship, and sharing the love of Jesus.

Successful mentoring relationships do not just happen automatically… we recognize that ongoing support, feedback, and training are necessary to help these relationships grow.  Recognizing this reality, all of our URJH and URHS mentors will meet about six times, outside of Wednesday nights, in our Mentor Huddle meetings.  We see these huddles as a place to offer mentors encouragement/support; provide ongoing training; and strengthen community – building a sense of connectedness and belonging among our mentor teams.   These meetings will be facilitated by the UR Students Staff and UR Students Coaches, creating space for mentors to process their experiences as they journey alongside students. UR Students Coaches are community members who will offer additional support, resources, and prayer.  They also offer support to the UR Students Staff and are available to walk alongside mentors who are navigating overwhelming issues.

Interested in becoming a mentor?
Please note – our application will ask for a copy of your driver’s license and auto insurance. Please have a jpeg to upload on hand… (we have found the easiest way is to take a picture with your phone).
