The Mentorship Program at World Relief is designed to pair young refugee participants with mentors from the community who are dedicated to helping them identify and achieve their short-term and long-term goals. The program is dedicated to refugee-status individuals from 15 to 24 years of age. In the mentorship program, participants are exposed to real-life mentoring relationships alongside unique opportunities for growth and development such as civic engagement and service days, scholarships, career training and travel.



Mentors are asked to attend three program events per month. These include:

  • Mentorship Mondays: One large group meeting that will take place from 6 pm - 8 pm on one Monday night per month. The purpose of these meetings is to facilitate a greater sense of community within the mentorship participants.

  • Service Saturdays: Once a month, the large group will gather together and engage in service in some capacity in the community. These Saturdays will often be volunteer service, but also include some civic engagement and personal development focused sessions.

  • Small Group Meeting: Each mentor is asked to plan an outing or evening for their small group that will last at least 2 hours on one evening that works for each participant.
