Residential Mentor- 1 year

Mentors are college age, full-time residential staff who live and work in one of the four homes we have on campus. They support the houseparents in their responsibilities, provide academic instruction according to our individualized approach to education, and seek to engage in daily discipleship of students ranging from 6 to 18 years of age.


Residential Mentors live in one of the four homes we have on our campus here in eastern, Tennessee. We have two homes for girls and two homes for boys. Mentors could be asked to serve in any of the four homes, based on need.


While we can be flexible on start and end dates, Residential Mentors typically serve for 1 year. A common timeline is from the end of an August through the middle of the following August. We are currently hiring Mentors to begin January 2019 or as soon as possible if available (ex. if the applicant has already graduated or is not currently in school).
