2 Ways to Go Back to School with HFNY

August 06, 2014

We're preparing this August to go back to school with our children & youth affiliates... and we want to support them by PRAYING and by SERVING. How can you get involved?  


FIRST WAY: Pray for the kids in our program

We're committing all month to pray for the children & youth in our mentoring programs, our affiliate staff, and their surrounding community. We would love for you to join us! 

Click here to sign up for HFNY prayer e-mails that will go out later this month, highlighting non-profits serving kids in our city and how we can pray for them before the school year starts.

We'll also be posting on Twitter and Instagram using #HFNYBacktoSchool and #PraywithHFNY, so follow us there, too. 


SECOND WAY: Find out more about becoming a mentor in the Fall

One of the biggest volunteer needs we have is for mentors and tutors for the hundreds of children and youth from low-income backgrounds served by our affiliate non-profits across the city. 

So, it's definitely a need for us and for the kids our programs serve. But how could mentoring change your life?

  1. You’ll be part of changing a child’s life Probably more than any other volunteer opportunity, mentoring a young person one-on-one gives you the opportunity to experience transformation and growth firsthand
  2. You’ll join a community of other mentors Our programs like Operation Exodus Inner City, Morris Academy Mentors, Montlawn City Camp, and others offer an incredible community of mentors together who meet, encourage, and pray for one another throughout the year
  3. You’ll build into the next generation of New Yorkers When you mentor, you’ll join a movement that will have repercussions far beyond the time you spend as a mentor— you’ll be part of influencing an entire generation. We think that’s an exciting prospect. 

Interested? On August 25, we're hosting a mentoring info session, where you can find out more about our programs, and about how you can get involved. You can RSVP here.
