“Growing Up Having Someone To Listen Would Have Been So Amazing. I Wanted To Be That Person For Someone.”
Sharon is a mother and works full time in Banking but she knew she could still give one hour a week to a student. The relationship that developed over the years became one that has changed the live of both of them.
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.
