Mentors invest in Heroes

For some, the prospect of investing into a single child over several months seems overwhelming, but for others, it's the only possible way for them to feel like they are truly impacting the life of someone in need.  Our Mentorship Program gives you the chance to pour your heart and soul into a child.  Every child we have here at TBR could become the Hero that the world needs, and you could be the person that offers them a chance to see just how important they are.  Your investment is what gives mentorship meaning.  

The two things you must have to be a mentor for Texas Boys Ranch:

Life Experience
Seems simple, I know, but it's true.  The most important thing we need our mentors to have is life experience.  You don't need fancy degrees, and you don't need to be hyper successful; you just need to have relatable life experiences that could help you lead one of our kiddos to a better future. 

Perspective 
You need to be the kind of person who has learned from your past failures and successes. You need to be able to recognize positive traits in others, and help them to cultivate and develop them.  

How to Start Mentoring:

  • Complete the application process
  • Come for a site visit and interview
  • We pair you with a child who could benefit from your experience and perspective
  • Start meeting with your young hero 

How Mentorship Works:

Mentorship can be defined as: a period of time in which a person receives guidance from a mentor or teacher. As a result, we want to emphasize the importance of two primary concepts.

Relationship
You need to get to know them, and they need to get to know you.  But don't worry, we wont leave you all by yourself! We will be with you the entire way.  

Progress
Life is a journey, and if you are going to act as a guide for this young hero, you need to adopt a philosophy that values progress over perfection.  Progress, regardless of how minute, is the win we want to celebrate.
