Quality Assurance (QA) is part of CAYM's Gold Certification. Mentoring ministry brings the honor to God and has the most positive impact on its participants when it is done in a safe, effective, and sustainable manner. Examining your ministry's adherence to the best practices of mentoring is essential in this process.
Since its inception in 2005, CAYM has been using standards that are in line with nationally accepted best practices. These “Best Practices” are evidence-based procedures applied in a Christian context for mentoring ministries. When followed diligently, these allow a ministry to stay focused on the objective of providing safe, effective, and sustainable mentoring to youth. When mentoring is done with excellence, it honors God and enhances the perception of Christians in your community.
When a ministry completes the QA process and receives CAYM'S Gold Certification of Approval, your families, churches, and insurers have the assurance that your mentees are enrolled in a safe, effective, and sustainable mentoring program.
QA has set benchmarks, that when attained, will earn a ministry the respect of its peers. That ministry will join an elite group of mentoring ministries whose shared expertise and knowledge will strengthen mentoring in churches for years to come.
