Change a life over lunch

Take Stock in Children pairs good students who have the odds stacked against them with a caring adult mentor. As a mentor, you will provide the support, guidance and encouragement they need to succeed in school.

Simply by regularly meeting with your assigned student and helping them stay on track with our program, you will be providing them with a huge life-changing opportunity - all students who successfully graduate from our program will be given a Florida Prepaid Scholarship!

We are in great need for female and male mentors in the Fort Myers area.
