2/20/22 Chippewa Valley This Week: Tandem Mentorship Program

           Chippewa Valley This Week


Relationship Director, Ashley Stoll, fills us in on the Tandem Mentorship Program(Tandem), founded in 2016 in Eau Claire by the ministry of 513FREE, a non-profit organization. Through this organization there was a committee appointed to create Tandem. There was a common belief between the committee and 513FREE that many youths in the community were experiencing adversity. They saw the need of Christ-centered and caring adults to walk alongside these youths.
In March 2018, Tandem became its own entity and changed the name to Tandem Mentorship Program. There was a board that was established in July 2018 to continue to carry out the Tandem vision of providing mentoring services. As of September 2018, Tandem received its 501(c)3 non-profit status, which serves the same goal of mentoring youth 11-18, with the hope to serve younger youth in the future.
