Summary: All club members are eligible to be partnered with a mentor. This program is central and highly beneficial for building relationships and overall impact on Club members’ experience.
Mentoring is a central feature of our programming. Adult volunteers partner with Club members to mentor them. Mentors spend at least one hour a week with their mentee doing anything from homework assistance to teaching basketball skills. Children enjoy having someone to talk to about issues at home or school, and mentors get to make a difference in a child’s life.
Allow Club kids to speak with an adult about school issues, receive tutoring, or learn a new sport.
Mentoring enables all Club kids to be partnered up with a mentor if they desire. Mentoring allows children to develop an ongoing relationship with a caring, adult professional.
