Building stong committed, Christ-centered relationships is the core of the project. Each young adult in the project has a pre-screened christian mentors. The benefits of a mentoring relationship are both immediate and long-term. We believe that just as Jesus modeled godly character to his disciples by letting them into every area of his life, we too model Christ to the young people in our project. “Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ” – 1 Cor 11:1. Soar Romania utilizes a multi-level mentoring concept.
- Resident Advisor/Life Coach – a full-time staff person who lives at the facility and provides accountability and direction for the program participant. The Advisor meets with the young adult daily to guide them through each area of growth, determine adherence to goals, and provided encouragement and advice.
- Community Mentor – a Christian community volunteer who commits to a minimum one year relationship with the young adult. These relationships are designed to match vocational and recreational interests in order to create an apprentice-like relationship. Community Mentors meet weekly or bi-weekly with young adults and stay in contact with the Resident Advisor to assist in compliance with established goals.
- Peer Mentor – a young person in the church community who is choosing to walk in obedience to Christ will mentor new residents in our program. This relationship is designed to foster positive peer influence and to encourage our resident to stay connected to the Church Body.
All Community Mentors make a minimum one-year commitment to invest one to two hours a week of face-to-face and/or telephone contact time with the young adult. During this time they are devoted to all of the activities of a good mentor: listening, offering sound advice, providing insight and experience, lending moral support, acting as a bridge between Soar Romania, the Director and the young adult.
