One simple thing will make a big difference in the life of an at-risk child: One-on-one, positive attention from a responsible, caring adult.

KIDS HOPE USA mentors spend just one hour per week, reading, talking, playing and listening to a child at school. By helping the child feel loved and valued, they help that child to learn, grow and succeed.

You can change a life…and that’s no small change.

Millions of our children are living in situations where their emotional and social needs are not being met, putting them at risk. Millions of children in America are searching for proof that someone cares. KIDS HOPE USA is here to give them that proof, one child, one hour at a time. Our proven programs join one church and one school in a partnership that helps children thrive.

At Village Church, we are starting our 5th year of mentoring students in Carpentersville at Meadowdale and Lakewood Elementary Schools.  This is our 2nd year mentoring students at Sanborn Elementary School in Palatine.  There are more kids in need of mentors than the number we have available, so we are always looking for more mentors!  If you would like more information, fill out the form below.
