Mentor Match Highlight
A school-based match transforms into a hybrid community match and more
Mentoring has many benefits. Two brothers and their Youth Horizons’ Mentors started as school-based matches at Washington Elementary, but both matches have evolved into a hybrid community match. After the school year ended, David and Linken and Dallas and Nickolai started doing community activities including attending a Wichita State Shocker basketball game, a church service project in April that sent food to Ukraine, an air show at McConnell Air Force Base and events hosted by Youth Horizons. These activities allowed both matches time to develop relationships and further bond. There’s more: the Mentors, David and Dallas — both members of Eastminster Presbyterian Church — have also formed a friendship through their mentoring activities.
