Mentoring

Our mentorship program is involved in working with youth one to one in a variety of areas including working with horses, farm related activities, outdoor exploring and adventures, and much more.  An ideal mentor will have the ability to get onto the child or youth’s level and meet them on their level regardless of their age, developmental level, religion, and culture. The mentor will not need to have all the answers to life’s big questions but have the willingness listen, empathize, and share the love of Jesus Christ.  

Qualifications of a mentor

  • Must be willing to sign off on River’s Edge statement of faith and  display the lifestyle of a Christian witness.
  • Have a personal and life changing relationship with Jesus.
  • Comfortable and experienced in the area(s) that they would like to mentor in (woodworking, horsemanship, kayaking, etc.)
  • Experience with children and youth.
  • Must be willing to participate in training that Rivers Edge offers over and above the time committed to mentoring.
  • Must be able to commit for one year.
  • Preferable to have first aid and CPR certification.

Any individual who is interested in becoming a mentor must begin by completing the Mentor application and sign off on a release of liability waiver form. These forms are available below. Please fill out the forms and submit it once they are filled out. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at  info@riversedge.ca.
