On behalf of our founders, Tom and Nancy Osborne, we thank you for your interest in mentoring. TeamMates is a school-based mentoring program which means that mentoring takes place on school grounds during school hours. The school connection tells youth that school is important and our data shows an improvement in grades, attendance and behavior as a result.
As a mentor we are asking you to give one hour per week to a young person between grades three through twelve. You identify the age you are comfortable with and we’ll make the match. We ask for a minimum of one school year with the goal of following your mentee through high school graduation.
