The Way – Intergenerational Mentoring Circles

If you’d like to participate in these circles, we’ll be hosting an informational gathering on Saturday, Nov. 9, at 5:00pm. This will be right before our Grill On the Hill.

What: An inter-generational circle gathering of 10-14 adults and youth who will share their struggles and success, faults and hopes for the future. It’s a mentoring strategy that helps young people navigate seasons of life with the wisdom of their elders.

Why: Studies suggest that children and youth benefit most from the investment of five adults, other than their parents, who will take an interest, encourage and support them as they grow.

How: The Way involves two monthly gatherings. The first will always be on the second Saturday of the month during which adults and youth will share what is capturing their attention, asking for support, and exploring a value that we are called to live out together. During the first gathering of the month the groups will plan an outing as a way to embody the value studied in the first circle gathering.
