Looking for an opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life? Find out more about becoming a mentor at First United Methodist Church’s Mentoring Workshop from 8:30 a.m. to noon Nov. 15 at the church conference center, 930 North Blvd.
The event will be hosted by the local unit of United Methodist Women, said Ruth Whitaker, program sponsor. Registration and continental breakfast begins at 8:30 a.m., and District Attorney Hillar Moore will open the program at 9 a.m. with a talk about mentorship and its role in fighting crime.
Four more organizations — HOPE Ministries, Volunteers in Public Schools, First United’s after-school program and Big Buddy — will speak to participants. The workshop is free and open to the public, and no preregistration is required.
Men, women and teens will have mentoring opportunities to explore, Whitaker said, and nursery services will be available for younger children.
