Kids Hope USA

Kids Hope USA

Kids Hope USA is the catalyst for an expanding network of church/school partnerships. These partnerships take on the enormous challenge of kids at risk—One Child, One Hour, One Church, One School at a time—through one-on-one mentoring relationships.

KidsHopeUSAVertical2One Child

An at-risk public elementary school child who needs a relationship with a caring adult.

One Hour

Sixty critical minutes each week when a trained mentor befriends a child and helps him or her acquire basic academic skills.

One Church

Takes ownership of a program with its neighborhood school and provides a trained mentor and a behind-the-scenes prayer partner for each child.

One School

Welcomes this proven intervention to increase the academic skills of at-risk children, while incurring no additional expense.

How Can You Get Involved?

  • MENTOR: Give love to a child one hour per week at the school.
  • PRAYER PARTNER: Be the person who upholds the child, the mentor and the relationship in life changing prayer.
  • SUBSTITUTE MENTOR: Be available to stand in for a mentor who must miss a session.
  • VOLUNTEER: All Kids Hope USA mentors volunteer their time to nurture the heart of an at-risk child. These loving, caring adults are all members of the congregation at the participating partner church, and each makes a commitment to devote an hour every week to their mentoring role.
