Become A Mentor 2015-03-26T21:02:36+00:00
We believe that every child needs an advocate and a mentor – someone to encourage them, to serve as a role model, to praise their efforts. Someone to promote the sparkle in their eye and someone to teach them how to shine. For students who do not have that kind of relationship at home, a mentor can provide that support by building a special friendship with a student.
