One Child One HourAt the heart of Kid’s Hope USA is one caring adult mentoring one at-risk child for one hour every week. A child who feels loved and valued is better able to learn, grow, and succeed.
One Church One SchoolThe mentors of Kids Hope USA come from our St John's community which coordinates the program. The children come from one school district. Because the Kids Hope program is provided free of cost for schools, it meets the urgent need of educators for student support without adding any expenditures.
MentorsThe adult mentor meets with a child for one hour each week at the school to tutor the child' as well as provide loving support. For many children, this hour is one of the most treasured of the week.
Melody Holmes, Elementary Teacher - Michigan:
As a teacher, I have walked by many a mentor session and continue on my way with tears in my eyes. I see kids, each year, mature in relationships with other students and improve in academics. I know the many needs of a given student, and I am touched to see efforts to connect on their behalf. Thank you. It matters."
