Welcome to CAYM


Our kids need it.
Our Churches need it.

CAYM can help you.

At CAYM we train and support churches and ministries in the development of safe, effective and sustainable mentoring ministries with our youth and their families. All young people need mentors, especially the fatherless and motherless among us.

Start a Mentoring Ministry

Kids need mentors. Churches have faithful men and women who can mentor. How can we connect them safely and effectively? Calvary Chapel of St. Petersburg and Perimeter Church of John's Creek, GA are just two of many examples of churches who are helping transform young lives by developing their own mentoring programs.
