Many young people go through life without the added support of a mentor and are more likely to drop out of high school.

Through the Take Stock in Children Scholarship Program, students are paired with a caring adult mentor who meets with them regularly at school or through virtual platforms. Relationships are formed and a pivotal transformation in each person’s life begins to take place. Many mentors have commented that they reap the benefits of mentoring, just like the student.

It's easy to become a mentor! Visit our website irscfoundation.org/tsic to complete the Volunteer Mentor Application and New Mentor Form and someone will be in contact with you.
