iCARE (Creating Authentic Relational Energy) Mentoring is school based mentoring that will target Akron Public Schools students starting in the 5th and 6th grades through its core one-to-one mentoring program. There are currently 4,904 APS students enrolled in these grades in 39 school buildings. Additional students in higher grades will also receive 1:1 and group mentoring through iCARE Mentoring Tier 2 (high school student led peer mentoring) and Tier 3 (contractual agreements with community organizations) programming.

Our mission is to build champions with self-confidence and self-esteem to triumph over life’s difficult challenges and obstacles. We do this by partnering 1 mentor with 1 child, once a week for 1 school year until every child in Akron who needs or wants a mentor-role model has one.
