“My Mentor Actually Cared About Me. To Me That Was A Really Big Deal.”
Ryan wasn’t sure that he wanted a mentor and felt a bit offended that someone else thought he needed support. Then he was introduced to his mentor who met him where he was and helped him find his purpose.
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.
