Kids Hope USA


Kids Hope USA is a church-based mentoring program working with students at the elementary level. First Cutlerville Church has partnered with Marshall Elementary of Byron Center Public Schools for 14 years walking alongside over 60 students.



We train caring adults to befriend a child in a one on one relationship and a prayer partner from our church supports each mentor/student pair. Mentors meet once a week with a child at school for one hour -- that hour is filled with tutoring, games, relationship building and lots of laughter.

Our goal is to build confidence. We believe that every child is unique and has great value in this world!
