About Us

Cultivating strong communities through mentoring.

Be The One – A program of Partners for Schools. As a faith-inspired non-profit, Partners for Schools cultivates community engagement, to raise hope and inspire student success.

Community mentor volunteers invest one hour a week with a student so that each unique student is
seen, heard, known, and inspired with hope for their future. All interested students may request a
community mentor at any time. Students and Mentors are uniquely paired based on common interests
and background. Volunteers are screened, trained, matched, and supported by a dedicated school
mentor coordinator who facilitates weekly mentoring meetings.

In alliance with schools, local businesses, individuals, civic groups and communities of faith.

School mentor coordinators are school district employees. Coordinator salaries and all program costs
are crowd funded by the community.

We Cultivate Community Engagement, To Raise Hope And Inspire Student Success.

Our mentoring programs meet national best mentoring practices. We are a Mentor Washington
Dedicated Partner.
