The Benefits

Mentors pursue an intentional friendship with a student at a local school in an effort to influence positive behavior.

Mentors meet with a student once a week during lunch or breakfast for the academic calendar year.

Average time is 30-45 minutes.

Students with a consistent role model have statistically shown improvements in academic performance and school attendance, a decrease in disciplinary issues, and tend to display an overall more positive attitude about life, school and future choices.
