What is your dream for your son?

Let’s work together to make that dream come true.

Forerunner Mentoring Program exists to facilitate life transformation in the lives of young men through the power of quality after-school programming and one on one mentoring relationships.

Our hope is that each young man in our program will gain the confidence necessary to reach their full potential in life so they can become godly husbands, fathers, and future leaders in their community.

  • Transportation from RISD Schools to our After-School Program (map)

  • Fun, safe, and engaging after-school programs from 3-6pm every school day

    • Foundations Program (K-2nd) focuses on literacy in a Christ-centered environment

    • Equipping Program (3-6th) focuses on equipping young men with the tools needed to fulfill their God-given potential in education, character, and leadership

    • Development Program (7-8th) focuses on helping young men transition from boyhood into manhood by guiding them through adolescence with a focus on Christ

  • Our team leads and grade coaches create an encouraging environment for your children to excel academically, relationally, and spiritually

  • One-on-one/group mentoring relationships with screened volunteers and staff
