The National Network of Youth Ministries will increase its infrastructure and capacity to recruit and refer large numbers of adults from among and in partnership with its 72 national Cooperating Ministry organizations and 650 local networking affiliates in cities and towns across America. Also, the 10,000 church-based youth worker members of the Network will serve as a significant pool of potential recruiters as we work together to increase the number of caring adults willing to mentor a child or teenager in a local school, neighborhood or institution.
