Sarah's Daughters Mentoring Program
Sarah’s Daughters’ growth is in large part due to our partnership with CAYM and its competent, God-focused leadership and staff. I found CAYM on the web and immediately signed up myself and two other staff leaders to attend their Core Training. The ongoing advice and updates on the latest tools available has been invaluable to our program. We highly encourage all Christian-focused mentoring ministries to consider joining this relevant organization. I can truly say that this was a God-connection indeed!

The Southern New England Ministry Network of the Assemblies of God seeks to add value to our ministers and ministries. Partnering with the Christian Association of Youth Mentoring is a marriage made in heaven. Christian mentors add value to the next generation today. Sharing our own heart along with the heart of God can transform a young person for good and greatness. CAYM can help our churches reach outside their walls and effect eternal change in today's world...one youth at a time!

"CAYM not only has helped build our mentoring program at Shepherd Community Center but also has guided us in a vision to expand mentoring to other churches and ministries in our city. For this end we hosted an informational meeting and 2 day core training led by CAYM for 8 different churches and ministries in our city, along with some out of state participants. This was very successful for our ministry and for the other churches and ministries who attended; as a result, more youth are being mentored and more mentoring initiatives have been started using CAYM's model. The task of building a mentoring initiative can seem daunting; but what I appreciate about CAYM's training is that they break all the components of youth mentoring down into bite-sized chunks with a realistic timeline tailored for the context in which a church or ministry focuses. The training and follow up is executed by CAYM staff with excellence, understanding, wisdom, and holistic support including consistent prayer. For churches or ministries following the Father God's call "to look after the widows and orphans in distress" (James 1:27) through a mentoring initiative, you will be thoroughly served by the staff of CAYM and fulfilled by seeing your youth and mentors build trusting relationships."

"The Christian Association of Youth Mentoring has been an answer to prayer for our mentoring ministry. Through the Association, our ministry has had the opportunity to be involved with excellent training and has united with other mentoring ministries. We have received wisdom, direction, and encouragement. With the help of CAYM, we have developed a training model available for our mentors, board, and staff. Through the Association we gain additional education and find helpful resources."

“As a pastor of 21 years I have observed an increasing number of children in need of wise guidance. Mentoring establishes a lifeline of hope for youth in need. I heartily endorse the training and support offered by CAYM.”

We came with high hopes as we were told that this would answer all our questions and more. This seminar definitely lived up to its high billing. We had a great time as we walked through everything we could possibly need to start and carry out a mentoring program for our churches and community. Thank you for the great stories, powerful real life information and comprehensive materials. Thanks!
