Kare11 Feature on Minnesota's Successful Mentoring Programs.
KARE11 interviewed a few select non-profits in Minnesota that are making a huge difference within their mentoring programs for children and families. 18-year-old Parenting With Purpose was one of the featured organizations selected.
At, PWP we desire to teach the value of serving others and giving back. Our children and youth look forward to our annual Feed My Starving Children event in October. Typically, 40-50 of our youth and volunteers attend this event and pack over 3,000 meals during our time there. This in not only rewarding, but it provides us and avenue to instill the biblical value that it is better to give than receive.
Everyone in our mentoring program is encouraged to attend this monthly support group, which focuses on biblical principles for personal growth. In this group, youth receive a healthy lunch, a message of hope and encouragement, and an opportunity to talk among peers about the issues they experience.
