Our Sponsor-A-Scholar Program is grounded in the belief that a caring and committed adult can make a significant difference in the life of a student. We recognize the profound impact that a mentor can have on a student's chance of graduating from high school and completing college. Mentors make a long-term commitment to their students and are matched with students in the 10th grade and work with them through, at least, their first year of college. Many relationships last a lifetime. Learn more about mentoring.
