Promoting Esteem Among Kids

Mission Statement: Enable youth to develop positive relationships with caring adults 

Vision Statement: Help children develop healthy, strong relationships and negate adverse childhood experiences.

One-on-One Mentoring

Mentors and mentees will meet for one hour on a weekly basis. One-on-one mentoring will occur for one full year. Together, matches will discuss the theme of that week and/or any relevant topic specific to the mentee. This may include homework, school, the community, family, friends, sports, etc. Ongoing academic support will also be available to the mentee. The pair will also be encouraged to participate in a relationship-building activity or event that is important to the mentee. The main purpose is to develop and strengthen the bond between the mentor and mentee by allowing for direct, one-on-one time.
