Mission Statement

Description

Los Angeles Team Mentoring began its TeamWorks mentoring program in 1992 in response to the civil unrest in our city. TeamWorks is an innovative after-school mentoring program for middle school children in disadvantaged communities within the Los Angeles Unified School District. Currently serving 13 middle schools throughout the Great Los Angeles Area, TeamWorks fuses the strengths of traditional one-on-one mentoring with the power of group dynamics. Adult teams of mentors, comprised of teachers from the school, college students, and business/community volunteers, work with groups of 10-12 students, using an activity-based curriculum that focuses on leadership development, team building, self-esteem, health and wellness, conflict resolution, community service and cultural diversity.
