Campus Mentor

Posted February 4, 2019

WeDignify, Champaign, IL

WeDignify
We envision college campuses to be centers for a culture of life where people treat life with love, new life is welcomed with joy, and people suffering from abortion are led to healing hope.

Our mission is to mentor college students into skilled, virtuous, pro-life leaders, so they can build and nurture a culture of life on campus and in their future communities.

Why Campus Mentors?
The complexity of abortion demands a dynamic response. The prevalent, personal tragedy of abortion demands a relational response. The hostility against a culture of life demands both education and leadership formation. Dynamic, relational Campus Mentors transform students to change culture and save lives.

What is a Campus Mentor’s Job? A Campus Mentor (CM) mentors students into skilled, virtuous, pro-life leaders through:
Mentoring: form student mentees in pro-life virtues and leadership skills through 1 on 1 meetings.
Small Groups: teach student small groups (5-8) weDignify’s pro-life curriculum through weekly meetings. A CM oversees or facilitates multiple small groups and advances students in leadership.
Chapters: CM’s guide student Chapters, especially Core team leaders. Student Chapters have 3 pillars (education, service, and activism) that guide their actions to build a culture of life on campus. All actions are conducted through weDignify’s Dialogue with DignityTM philosophy.
Events: weDignify provides broadscale events that educate, equip, and empower students from all our Chapters and beyond. A CM brings students and provides event support.

How does weDignify support a Campus Mentor?
WeDignify is dedicated to people and that starts with our team members first. Our support includes summer training, weekly mentorship, semester retreats, team time, and more!

How is a Campus Mentor funded? Through proven training, a CM builds a support team from people the CM knows. Support team members join in weDignify’s mission by financially investing to send the CM to campus. Every CM who has followed weDignify’s training has successfully raised his/her salary. To support a new CM is building his/her support team, weDignify invests in the CM’s salary (up to 34% in the 1st year) and then incrementally decreases.

Job Description
Looking for a full-time employee as part of parish staff/ministry team. In the past, our DRE was part time and our YM was part time – the downside was a lack of presence and communication – we feel that this is worth offering a larger salary and benefits. Experience is important. Orthodoxy and a prayer life is a must. Catechesis is part of the job. Maturity and ability to deal with parents is required for the DRE portion – especially as we move toward more of a “home school” model, requiring more dialogue with families and parental involvement. Youthfulness and flexibility is important for the youth ministry part. Will be working closely with pastor who is hands-on with RCIA, YM, and Rel. Ed.
