The elementary school students receive encouragement, connection to caring mentors, and opportunities to participate in life-skills workshops and community service activities.

Program Goals

  • Create quality mentoring relationships for youth who need them most
  • Increase positive behaviors, reduce risk behaviors, and improve the self-concept of at-risk youth in order to help them make healthy choices and reach their full potential
