Mission Statement

Mentoring Works2 is a comprehensive mentoring service program that incorporates a variety of mentoring strategies to teach kids to achieve goals, build relationships, and develop confidence. We are dedicated to transforming the lives of at-risk, inner city youth through mentorship, education, and training. Mentoring Works2 works to transmit positive, life changing messages of and purpose to targeted youth through group and one-on-one interactions with dedicated mentors and role models who believe passionately in the promise of our youth.

Description

Established in June of 2006 in Washington D.C., Mentoring Works2, Inc. ("MW2") is a community based non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to transforming the lives of at risk, inner-city youth through a mentoring program that matches vetted, trained adults with youth in need and offers a safe location for tutoring, mentoring and social engagement. Through weekly community dialogue with parents, youth, local police and community leaders, MW2 assesses the needs of the Shaw/Columbia Heights neighborhood and creates specific youth mentoring programs to address these needs.

A positive, encouraging and practical approach to issues such as academic success, substance use, conflict resolution, money management, physical and mental health, and community service are promoted through one-on-one interactions and regular gatherings at MW2. MW2 offers a safe haven for youth to congregate after school and during the summer, participating in tutoring, workshops, and field trips and to relaxing in a community that has scant locations for teens to gather and where low-income kids rarely venture beyond a 3-mile radius.
