New mentoring matches slowed in January. Weather conditions brought school closures resulting in canceled mentor trainings for interested adults. Next month’s report will again show steady progress of new mentoring matches on all campuses.

Mentor/Mentee Events→ 4%
As a community, we partner with our schools by volunteering as mentors and by raising funds. Our community donations provide for the critical role of a professional Mentor Coordinator and related expenses of the mentoring program.
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.
