“If It Weren’t For My Mentor, I Wouldn’t Be The Person I Am Today.”
Before Aranza had a mentor, she felt alone and empty. But now, Aranza has chance to be heard, the opportunity to grow and a place to belong.
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.
