Our mission is: "Provide caring, supportive adults to serve as friends, role models, motivators, and inspirations for students who are needful for additional attention, to help them grow into productive, responsible adults."
The program is infused with a duty to build and strengthen the character and competence of children and youth which will build leadership abilities and, hence, their ability to succeed during their school years and beyond. We know that the community MUST take responsibility in providing tangible support to our educators and students through hands-on involvement.
This program is a grass-roots organization developed to provide much-needed individual support for struggling public school students. Our program recruits, trains, and offers extended support to caring adults who volunteer to work one-to-one with children and youth who can benefit from a positive role model, friend, advocate, and/or confidant.
Mentors take on the responsibility for having a positive impact on the developmental needs of their mentees. Our purpose is to bring support to help level the educational playing field by promoting personal relationships that encourage learning opportunities both academically and personally.
