Research tells us the power of caring adult mentors in the lives of younger children can be dramatic and far-reaching.
My Mentor My Friend matches caring adults in a lunchtime mentoring program with students in underserved public elementary schools across the city of Cleveland.
Volunteer lunchtime mentors develop a relationship with one child throughout the school year that translates to improved attendance, academic attitude, social skills and self esteem for a child and a sense of fulfillment for a mentor. Matches generally begin at the 4th grade. Returning mentors and students are able to renew and grow their friendships each school year through 8th grade.
