Change a Life Over Lunch!
100 people are interested
All it takes is 30 minutes of your time twice a month for a total of 16 sessions for the school year, to make a huge difference in a students journey to college.
Having lunch with a student can lead to a lasting, and profound impact not just for the child, but for your entire community. It will change YOUR life.
Our Student Advocacy and Mentoring Partnership (STAMP) program matches good students who have the odds stacked against them, with a caring adult who can provide them the guidance, wisdom, and support they need to be successful. As a dedicated mentor, you'll spend time with your student just a few times a month, and see how your time changes a life.
Students who could benefit from extra support, are screened to be a part of our program. We Advocate for them by providing important resources and assistance.
Mentors from the community meet with them to help them reach their goals.
The Foundation believes that we are all Partners in education.
Every child in our life-changing program makes a pledge to maintain at least a 2.5 GPA, all A's, B's and C's, stay crime and drug free, and meet with their mentors at least twice a month throughout the school year. We provide resources to help you and your student have a successful and rewarding experience.
Leave your STAMP on a child's heart!
