MK5 Mentoring Program envisions a community in which every young person experiences nurturing one-to-one relationships and community support, which in turn encourages each young person to develop their God-given gifts. MK5 is a Christ-centered, mentoring program that takes kids living in the Mt. Vernon Neighborhood by the hand and walks with them through college, helping them have abundant life—mind, body and soul.
It is MK5’s vision that each participating student will have a dedicated, one-on-one mentor. Mentors are needed to spend a minimum of 16 intentional hours per month in each child’s home, school, neighborhood, and community. Young people and mentors will gather Thursdays for food, friendship, sharing and spiritual time.
