- Help teachers and volunteers develop meaningful mentoring relationships with students that will lead to a strong foundation of faith.

Preteen Get the Edge Comics Grades 5 & 6

We knew that in order to have impact on preteens we needed to build relationships with them, but many of our teachers didn’t know where to begin. We chose the Gospel Light Preteen curriculum because it gives our teachers all of the tools they need to build life-changing relationships with preteens.
