WHAT WE DO
We match college students to participate in one-on-one mentoring with a child at one of our partnering sites and focus on building personal trust and support to foster the child’s academics, future thinking, and character development.
BRIDGE TO SUCCESS
We provide high school students with opportunities to build on specific skills for life after high school such as how to register for college, apply for jobs, build a resume, and where and how to hone their professional development skills.
We facilitate a variety of different internships to showcase the passion, creativity and skills of our interns. Apply today.
Behind Our Cause
We encourage and support youth in their pursuit of a brighter future.
We seek to change the lives of youth facing adversity. Our focus on innovative approaches to mentoring and learning helps inspire all students and we are extremely appreciative of all who are involved in accomplishing our mission. Mentoring has shown to improved children’s chances of academic and social success.
Children and youth who are mentored as less likely to be involved with gangs, violence, teen pregnancy, and alcohol and drug use. They are also more likely to do better academically, have better attitudes towards school, have better school attendance and an increased likelihood of going on to higher education.
