Mission Statement

SUCCESS Mentoring works to help struggling youth thrive socially and academically by pairing them with adult mentors who provide support. The program fosters long-term relationships between mentors and mentees with the aim of helping participants overcome personal and family problems, improve social & life skills, stay in school, increase their academic achievement and motivation, improve their decision-making skills, and increase their sense of self-worth. Mentors and mentees commit to spending 2-4 hours a week together for at least one year. The pair build a strong friendship by doing the kind of things they both already enjoy - hiking, shopping, eating pizza, playing games, visiting sporting events, and many more!
