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.
Here are some photos from the party on December 19th!
Thank you to Kathy Young and her mentee for planning the Ferndale Be the One Pizza Party! They spent a lot of their mentoring time together planning the food and festivities. On December 19th, BTO mentors and mentees enjoyed pizza, card making and holiday games. A great way to spend time together before the two-week winter break vacation!
Stats – 19 mentors & 16 mentees for a total of 35 mentors and mentees!
“Well, the party isn’t over until 4:30!” said a mentee who wanted to keep hanging out with her mentor even when the party was dying down.
