Mentor Testimonials


The best part of mentoring is watching my mentee’s face light up when she has great news to share with me."

- a valued mentor at Blanche Ely High School

I just finished my seventh year as a mentor, and I still enjoy meeting with my mentee and his friends every week. It feels good to be a part of a young person's life."

 - a valued mentor at McFatter Technical High School

At first, I think my mentee was hesitant with me, but in time, we got along very well. I think I was able to make her realize just how special she really is.”

- a valued mentor at Charles W. Flanagan High School


My mentee was one step away from failing, but we got her grades up to all A's and B's by the end of the school year.”

I started mentoring most of my mentees when they were in middle school, and I am like a proud grandmother when they graduate!”
