One2One partners with communities to empower youth through one-on-one mentoring.
One2One is a mentoring platform that seeks to address the lack of individual attention for at-risk youth. One2One currently partners with North View Middle School, Park Center High School, Crest View Elementary School, and The Southdale YMCA to provide a one-on-one mentoring class curriculum for at-risk youth.
I had a great experience volunteering with One2One. These staff are professional, courteous, and helpful. It is a well organized volunteer opportunity. One thing to keep in mind is that the commitment is for a school year (Fall - Summer). You have the opportunity to work with a student and develop a meaningful relationship with them. At the end, I was told by my student that he wanted me to show up for his high school graduation in the future which really left me feeling like our mentor/mentee relationship was a success.
