Back to School is right around the corner! Now is the time to commit to mentoring a child. Mentoring helps with school performance, self-confidence and stretches a child’s thinking about their future.
Strapped for time yourself? We have two site-based programs that can fit into your busy schedule: MentorU and Lunch Buddies.
- Lunch Buddies serves students in grades K-5 and provides mentors a fun and convenient option to make a big difference in a child’s life. Once per week, matches meet during the lunch period at the student’s school. Providing your student, a positive, reliable, and consistent presence is what these relationships are all about!
- MentorU leverages the proven power of one-to-one mentoring and delivers it through a predominantly virtual setting. Delivered in partnership with Shadle Park High School, this offering improves student’s social-emotional well-being and better prepares them for life after high school. Matches use videoconferencing and text-based messages to develop social and life skills that help students discover and realize their potential
Mentoring matters. It can change a child’s whole outlook on life. Kids in our programs show significant improvement in educational expectations, social competence, and attitudes towards risky behavior. In fact, kids who have a mentor are 130% more likely to be in a leadership role in their life.
