Circle Urban Ministries is hosting a mentoring recruitment event from 10:30 a.m. t0 12:30 p.m. Saturday, April 12 at its campus in Austin, 118 N. Central Ave.
Activities include a relay race, T-shirt painting, free food and a speech by Circle Urban’s executive director, Dr. George Wilson.
“A good role model can make a tremendous impact on a young adult’s life,” Wilson said. “Our 1-to-1 mentoring program provides a great outlet for caring adults to make a difference and shows these kids that they are not alone, that working toward a better future is an admirable goal that we can accomplish together.”
Circle Urban’s 1-to-1 mentoring program is seeking concerned adult Christian mentors who want to help build a better future for students grades 6-12 and who can meet in Austin twice a month.
Founded in 1974 by a group of concerned residents, Circle Urban is dedicated to empowering urban youth through programs focused on mentoring, college readiness, arts enrichment and spiritual development.
