a Mentor Is...
A volunteer can change a child’s life by becoming a mentor, a confidant, and a friend. In just 30 to 60 minutes a week, a volunteer mentor can make a lasting impact in the life of a child. Join Take Stock in Children to provide our scholars the best resource they can have—a mentor!
“The best part of mentoring is watching my mentee’s face light up when she has great news to share with me."
