Each relationship is different, but they all share the same baseline. As a Philos, you would be committing to:
- Contact your student on a biweekly (every other week) basis
- Pray for your student on a weekly basis
- Relate to your student face-to-face on a monthly basis
That’s what we call relational CPR. Philos commit to this baseline for one year unless the student drops out of the program.
Your BAS friendship may develop into mentorship in life skills, career development, or spiritual growth. You might have the opportunity to share the gospel with your student or help them grow in their relationship with Jesus. Or you might not. Your student may become like an extended family member or a lifelong friend, or you may part ways after the year.
Whatever shape it takes, anything beyond the baseline is up to you and your student.
