Change a Life Over Lunch!
Yes, you really can change a life over lunch! Two of our programs designed to help deserving students from low-income families overcome the cycle of
mentors from the community to come alongside a student, encourage and help hold him or her accountable to succeed in school. One goal of the programs
is for the mentored student to graduate high school, prepared for the next step in life. The goal is college with a scholarship for Take Stock in Children students,
or college with help finding grants and scholarships, vocational training or entry directly into the workplace for STAMP students. We provide training
for mentors and the opportunity to network with other mentors. The time investment is minimal: meet with a middle or high school student during the school
year, on school grounds, for 30-45 minutes, two or three times a month. The return is huge! Mentors tell us how they grow and feel they are the ones who
gain the most from their mentoring experience - but the students argue that THEY are the ones who come out on top. We think they are both right!
- We need YOU to become a mentor! In the next month, we hope to match 38 deserving students with a mentor and start them on their journey to a successful future.
