Tandem Mentorship Program's mission is to empower youth in the Chippewa Valley to pursue their potential by receiving Christ’s love through mentorship and guidance. Tandem was created out of seeing a need for more caring adults in the teen’s lives that we were volunteering with in 2013. We noticed fruit in the youth we spent one on one time with and we wanted to give that opportunity to every teen that was yearning for that connection. In 2016 we started Tandem Mentorship. Since then we have supported 50 mentoring matches and worked with over 75 youth through our program. Our offices are located in Valleybrook’s Lodge where we do behind the scene work as well as hold our weekly events called Tandem Tuesdays. We have been able to build relationships with youth through teaching life skills, having a meal together, and sharing the love of Jesus every week we get together. We feel the Lord leading us to work to recruit more mentors to be in a relationship with younger youth in our local schools. We’re also working on the goal of starting a teen-led ice cream sandwich business where the youth get to keep a portion of the proceeds. We are excited for where He is leading us and can’t wait to share more with you!
