Sample Mentor Letter
My name is ______, and I am in the __ grade at _____ School. You may wish to include additional information about yourself.
This spring I will be participating in a new program for youth at All Saints’ called Confirm not Conform. It’s a confirmation program that invites and encourages teenagers to explore our faith by asking questions, challenging assumptions, and discovering what we truly believe.
As part of the program, each of us is required to find an adult mentor in the parish who can help teach us and pray for us along the way. I am reaching out to ask if you would consider being my mentor.
There are four main expectations:
1. Schedule at least two meetings with me between now and May to discuss questions of faith and what it means to be part of the church. The church staff will provide some discussion guides and conversation starters.
2. The program ends in the spring with a Rehearsal Dinner and Celebration and the Confirmation ceremony itself. You would need to be present for both. The dates are:
3. Attend as many of the additional events as you can. A schedule will be provided to you.
4. Complete the required Safeguarding God’s Children abuse prevention course in person or online. The main thing I need from a mentor is a listening ear. You don’t have to have all the answers and I don’t expect you to!
To provide you with additional information, and answer any questions you might have, I’d also like to invite you to one of two Mentor Training, scheduled for January 5, 2020 at 9:00 a.m in the Attic or January 8 at 6:15 p.m. in the Parish House. It’s a great chance to meet some of the other mentors and learn more about the program.
Please let me know by two weeks from now if you would be willing. I hope to see you soon and, in the meantime, I’ll hope you’ll prayerfully consider this opportunity.
