Celebrating our volunteers and mentors
who give selflessly of their time with their hands and hearts.
The StreetLightUSA Mentor program carefully matches a volunteer with each individual girl to provide support and positive influence through personal relationship. Mentorship plays an important role in healing, growth and developing healthy relationships skills.
Meet Jean Briningstool! Jean joined StreetLightUSA as a volunteer and has most recently began mentoring one of our residents. In just a few short weeks the value of this match has been apparent.
When asked why she decided to volunteer at StreetLightUSA, Jean notes, "For many years I have been aware of the serious issue of child sex trafficking and asked God what I could do about this atrocity. Then I learned about StreetLightUSA and delved in. The Lord has given me a burden for this issue and volunteering at StreetLightUSA seemed like a first step I could take to make an impact in a precious girl's life. I pursued qualification for a mentor position and finally got my ducks in a row and here I am!"
When asked about her mentee and their relationship, Jean says, "She is very precious to me already and I hope I get the chance to spend many hours with her and hopefully make an impact on her life. I count it a privilege to be a part of her life. Who knows where God may lead this relationship? But I am committed all the way, wherever it leads."
We are beyond grateful for those individuals who respond to the need every girl has for a deeper personal relationship with someone who knows and cares for them and is willing to commit to guiding and influencing their future and hope.
