Chris and Eddie’s Story

After being suspended from middle school, Chris was encouraged to meet with a mentor. He admits he was pretty skeptical about the whole mentoring idea, but decided to try it. Now he and his mentor, Eddie, are in their fourth year together! Chris and Eddie have off-campus privileges and usually meet together at Woods on Saturdays. They’ve talked about many topics over the years, including politics. “I enjoy talking with him. It’s fun, and it gets me out of the house. We sometimes meet a lot longer than an hour.” During the inconsistency of remote school, meeting with Eddie provided a sense of continuity and something to look forward to each week. Chris wants to continue his mentorship off campus next year as well.
