H3 (Heart, Hand & Head) is Peter Paul’s signature mentoring program in collaboration with MENTOR Virginia. We connect a responsible adult from the greater Richmond area with a Peter Paul student to foster a consistent relationship between student and mentor. The expectation is that a caring adult provides acceptance, support, encouragement, guidance, and concrete assistance to promote healthy youth development and academic success.
Mentors meet one-on-one at either our Coleman, Fairfield, or George Mason Promise Centers and visit with their mentee once a week for an hour, for at least two years. There are also opportunities for students and mentors to meet on weekends, enjoying Peter Paul field trips and sponsored activities. Mentors can choose to become community based mentors after one year of on-site mentoring with a student. Community based mentors can take their mentee off-site to activities throughout the Richmond metro area outside of regular Peter Paul programming.
