Tandem Mentorship Program
It is our goal to share life changing hope with Chippewa Valley youth through the support of a Christ-centered mentor. But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another and the blood of Jesus his son cleanses us from all sin. - 1 John 1:7
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.
Let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you. Romans 12:2
Tandem Mentorship Program, was founded in 2016 in the Chippewa Valley by the 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 whom they were already supporting. Tandem has forged strong partnerships with the local churches and other youth–serving organizations in the community.
The program director and the committee continue to carry out the Tandem vision of providing mentoring services. Tandem currently works with a faith-based after-school drop-in program. Since its inception, Tandem is currently include a mentoring program for youth 11–18.
