Take an unforgettable journey of faith
Develop your leadership skills and uncover a greater understanding of your faith. As a Mentor-in-faith for Notre Dame Vision, you will lead teenagers to a deeper understanding of God’s call for them while learning more about your own vocation. You will earn Theology credits and spend your summer mentoring high school students from around the country who spend one week at Notre Dame.
Undergraduates at Notre Dame, Saint Mary's and Holy Cross College can apply to serve in the following roles:
- Music Mentor: Lead music for the program and work in small groups
- Small Group Mentor: Facilitate small group discussions and serve as dorm counselors
- Master Mentor: Return for a second summer and help lead new mentors
Mentors-in-faith receive extensive training before leading high school students. A 3-credit Theology class, pastoral skills workshops, faith formation retreats, and reflection groups are included in the training.
Notre Dame Vision Mentors-in-faith represent some of the most gifted servant-leaders from Notre Dame, Saint Mary's and Holy Cross College. Mentors are selected from a competitive pool of applicants who demonstrate a willingness to serve and share their engaging personalities and personal stories of faith.
An information session for undergraduates interested in learning more about becoming a Mentor-in-faith is held annually in September. The application and interview process continues through October and November, and positions are finalized in early December. The process for 2019 is now closed.

Fear comes from thinking you’re alone. Notre Dame Vision confronted me with real community and told me not to be afraid.
Serving as a Notre Dame Vision Mentor-in-Faith gave me a glimpse of how God would reveal Jesus to me: through listening to and walking with young people.
