Mission Statement

The mission of Eyes Wide Open Mentoring is to empower homeless youth to rise above their immediate circumstances and take the steps necessary to enable them to have successful futures.

Description

Eyes Wide Open Mentoring pairs trained volunteer mentors to work one-on-one with homeless students enrolled in participating D.C. public schools to address the challenges associated with homelessness. Mentors help youth develop a realistic plan to cope with and overcome adversity. In addition to addressing the tough social-emotional issues that are associated with homelessness, students also have opportunities to participate in various fun and educational activities. Mentors guide youth in how to conduct themselves in a positive, future-directed manner.
