Our model empowers volunteers to use their skills and abilities to help our mentors make the greatest impact on the lives of kids in our community.  This strategy keeps our program connected to our partner churches and community to most effectively deliver services. It also assists us in creating greater sustainability as we can keep the number of staff and resulting budget low.

If you are passionate about bringing hope and help to kids in need, then we have a role for you!

We’ll help you find your place with FORGE. We want you to use your unique skills, interests,
and experiences to better our program so that we may more effectively serve kids in need – and
reach more kids that desire the friendship of a mentor.
