Serve as a Mentor

To be selected as a Mentor of Golden Opps, men must demonstrate that they are willing to abide by the rules and requirements of the Mentor Profile. Each man who is selected to become a Mentor of Golden Opps will be assigned to a Mentee and will provide the Mentee with the necessary guidance and support to help them to successfully re-enter society. Mentors will also provide the necessary assistance and accountability to help Mentees live a Christ-centered life and avoid the pitfalls and other circumstances that could cause them to relapse or end up back in the old life from which they have been redeemed. Our job as Mentors is to provide Mentees with guidance and support wrapped in the love of Christ.
