“J.T. Is Going To Graduate With Life Skills. That’s The Most Important Thing For A Kid.”
As a scared freshman kid, J.T. wanted a man in his life to help him be a man. Phil has provided that direction by being a friend and giving him some tough love. Phil is committed to working alongside JT to equip him with the life skills he needs not just to graduate from high school but to succeed in life. To Phil that’s the most important thing for a kid to have.
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.
