About

You can change a child's life by becoming a mentor. In just 30 minutes per week, you can make a lasting impact in the life of a child. Children need positive role models. They need a resource, a confidant, a friend. Someone to help them make positive choices in life. Someone to help them think about consequences before they act. They need someone who will listen. They need a mentor. They need you.

All mentors are required to attend a 90 minute orientation, receive a background check and meet with their mentee at their school during their lunch period once a week at least 3 times a month.

Take Stock in Children helps children from low-income families stay in school, earn a high school diploma, graduate from college and enter the workforce. Enrolling students as early as sixth grade, Take Stock in Children offers each child a college tuition scholarship. The children in the program sign performance contracts agreeing to get good grades (C or better), exhibit positive behavior, meet with their mentor, and remain drug and crime free.
