The Tandem Mentorship Program was established in 2016 as a ministry of 513FREE with the goal of sharing the life changing hope of Christ with at-risk youth in the Chippewa Valley 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.

 
 

The Impact.

To be honest, if it weren’t for (my mentor) I would be in a lot more trouble.
— Terrence (Mentee)
Thank you so much for taking so much time to work with Dylan. It was such an amazing opportunity that he had to work with you and I know that he enjoyed it. I appreciate you being open minded to taking on an “at risk” youth from a detention center. What an opportunity. You are just so awesome. WHAT A BLESSING YOU ARE!!!!! Saying thank you simply doesn’t cut it...but that is what I am. Sincerely thankful.
— Casey Velie (Eau Claire County, 180 Program Coordinator)
The most amazing thing about being a part of Tandem has been seeing the transformation of kids from untrusting, cautious and maybe even skeptical, to trusting, laughing, joking, and wanting to be known; desiring a relationship
