Does anyone know about this program? It is basically a program run by world vision where (Christian) churches pay to volunteer in public schools, matching a church member with a vulnerable child as a mentor. The volunteers are trained for the role, and spend one hour a week one on one with the child, in an "observable" area, with the aim of giving the child a loving "best friend" apart from their parents. The parents must consent, but never actually meet the mentor. After six months the mentor is allowed to invite the child and family to their church.
What do you think? Have you seen it in action? Am I crazy for being suspicious and worried about this?
