Tandem Mentorship Program
Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ ~ 1 Corinthians 11:1
It is our goal to share life changing hope with Chippewa Valley youth through the support of a Christ-centered mentor. We reach youth facing adversity in the Chippewa Valley through impactful, Christ-centered, guiding relationships. We pray Christ's power will lead to life changing transformation by inspiring hope and encouraging youth to reach their full potential.
Tandem Mentorship Program was founded in 2016 in the Chippewa Valley as a ministry of 513FREE, a nonprofit organization. Through this organization there was a committee appointed to create Tandem. There was a common belief between the committee and 513FREE, that many youth in the community were experiencing adversity. They saw the need of Christ centered and caring adults to walk alongside these youth. Determined to make a difference, the committee convened a series of meetings and attended multiple conferences in order to create a mentorship program for youth whom they were already supporting. Tandem has forged strong partnerships with the local churches and other youth–serving organizations in the community.
