We Mentor Kids.

It's What We Do.

Our fun-filled summer camps offer memorable, action-packed experiences. Campers have a blast and grow academically, all while sparking their growing faith.

Our after-school programs are the perfect way to end a school day. Our leaders invest in one-on-one relationships with students as they have fun with their friends, and yes – even get their homework done.

A relationship with a trusted mentor who follows Jesus can have a powerful impact on a child's life. Our mentors walk alongside kids and families to provide tangible help and eternal hope.

Join Our Team

We believe every child matters, regardless of what they look like or where they come from.

We are devoted to supporting kids and families and helping them experience and know God's love.


Come alongside us as we strive to make an impact in local communities. Part-time and full-time positions available.

Tangible Help. Eternal Hope.

We understand how hard it is to find safe and affordable childcare, let alone a place where you feel confident your child is growing. (And of course, having fun!) We provide real, tangible help for families while sharing the eternal hope of the gospel through genuine relationships.

Close To Home

We partner with local schools in the Greater Tyler and Greater Waco communities to offer after-school and summer camp programs close by. We are currently serving more than 20 schools and counting.

Creative Discovery

No matter what your child is into, we’ve got something they’ll love. Our leaders are great at coming up with new ways to learn and have fun every day!

Authentic Relationships

The students in our programs make real friendships with each other and their leaders. These relationships help them learn about Jesus and have a lasting impact on their lives.

Flexible Pricing

Every child should be able to join in on the fun! That’s why we offer affordable, income-based pricing for every family.

Servant-Hearted Leaders

Our leaders, volunteers and mentors care about helping kids succeed academically, spiritually and emotionally – and they love what they do.

Christ Centered

Jesus is at the center of everything we do. We build relationships on the foundation of His love and we help kids develop their own faith as they grow.

What our staff is saying

Mentoring Alliance helped me grow spiritually. It helped me realize that God is always with me 24/7 at any time, and he can put a smile on my face at any time. It makes me very happy.

- Tesa, Summer Camper to Camp Counselor

What our parents are saying

To have people that are willing to help your child because they want to – not because they have to – it makes a person feel wanted and want to do better.

-Destiny Hinojosa, Parent

What our partners are saying

Something that’s been extremely valuable for us is having an authentic proven partner in the Mentoring Alliance that can help us achieve successful student outcomes.

- Dr. Marty Crawford, Tyler ISD Superintendent

Invest in a Child's Life

What we do wouldn’t be possible without the support of our financial partners. Your gift will help kids in our communities get what they need to grow emotionally, academically and spiritually through one or more of our programs.
