During these uncertain times, how can we help?

The Mazie Mentoring Program honors John Andrew Mazie, who was killed by a drunken driver on June 19, 1997, at age 26. Our mission is to fulfill the legacy of John Andrew Mazie by recruiting and training adult volunteers to mentor and act as role models for Framingham, Marlborough and Waltham High School students. Mentors enable the teens to take control of their lives, to set and achieve goals, to apply to college or other post-secondary training, and to experience success.
Mentees enter the Mazie Mentoring Program in their sophomore year by being recommended by school staff as being at-risk of not realizing their full potential in school and in life. They remain in the program through high school graduation.
Our volunteer mentors support their mentees to set and achieve three-, six- and 12-month goals around community service, their academic performance, college research, career options and personal health and fitness The Foundation presents goal achievement awards at these intervals, including a lap top computer, for the successful completion of their college research goal.
Upon completion of the program and graduation from high school, mentees who are accepted into a post-secondary educational program receive the foundation scholarship.
