Top Reasons it Works

  1. Long-Term Commitment
    • We are committed to our children for the long haul ­ from first grade through high school graduation. No other mentoring program can say this.
  2. Serving the Most Vulnerable Children
    • We identify and select the children most in danger of school failure, gang involvement, abuse, teenage pregnancy, and criminal behavior due to their home environment and family circumstances.
