“Having Denny As My Mentor Has Completely Changed My Life.”
Alex found himself a deep hole and had little hope for a better life. He and his friends were into drugs and skipped school often. When asked if he wanted a mentor he thought, “finally”. As the result of having dedicated and caring mentors, Alex has now graduated and is going to college with hope for a brighter future.
At Be The One, we understand the many unique challenges our youth face today. Through mentorship, students are connected with an adult that matches their interests and personality. For one hour a week students meet with their mentor at school in a safe and positive environment. Be The One removes the financial burden of the program from the school by raising community support to fund a full time Mentor Coordinator position who is an employee of the school. Be The One also helps by attracting mentors and training them to effectively connect with students.
