Founded in 2005 by New York Times best-selling author, Donald Miller, The Mentoring Project is responding to an American crisis of fatherlessness.
The Mentoring Project aims to equipped faith communities to mentor fatherless youth.
Why is this so important?
The Mentoring Project mission:
Our goal for our hometown of Portland specifically is to end the waiting list made up of 1000 fatherless boys. We will do this by training up mentors in faith communities and finally seeing the church stand in the gap on the issue of fatherlessness. By focussing on mentoring, we believe that the American church could effectively shut down prisons, end school dropouts, curb youth suicide, and reduce homelessness for a large number of boys affected by the fatherless epidemic.
The Mentoring Project (TMP) is an advocacy and training organization that serves as a liaison between faith communities and matching agencies to provide mentors for fatherless youth. Through dynamic church trainings, national mentor recruitment, and the creation of sustainable mentoring communities, The Mentoring Project seeks to rewrite the story of the fatherless generation.
