More than 1 in 3 divorced children have not seen their fathers in the last year. These fatherless children are at serious risk for a host of maladies: physical, social, emotional, relational, and spiritual. While re-union with dad is the best solution, when that isn't possible in the near term, whatever the reason, there is a way to prevent those serious maladies from damaging these kids: a mentor. The research is clear- one hour a week with a caring mentor for a year can change the life of a fatherless child forever. This presentation highlights both the risks of fatherlessness and the benefits of a mentoring program along with the strategy for launching a program that is focused on developing leaders rather than "saving" fatherless kids.
