A mentor is a support person for a corps member. Because they do not live in the intentional community or work alongside the corps members, but are familiar with the practices and goals of JSC, mentors can provide an excellent “outside source” of wisdom, listening, sharing and support.
Mentors and corps members meet together at least once per month and may communicate throughout the month via text, phone, and email.
Mentors are recommended through our network of ecumenical congregations and the general Chapel Hill / Durham community and vetted by JSC. Many mentors have taken our Servant Leadership course or take it alongside the corps members in the fall.
