Adopt A Class is a group mentoring experience that connects businesses and civic groups with students, inspiring a corporate culture of teamwork and philanthropy and hope and a future vision of what is possible for the youth in our community.
Why Mentor? AAC mentors impact students in their community by being positive role models and supporting the development of practical and social skills in their student mentees. AAC mentors, in return, grow and connect with fellow colleagues through this group volunteer experience while transforming lives and strengthening their community.
“Gone are the days when we can fool ourselves into thinking we are preparing children for college, careers, and life by just focusing on academics. We must teach, model and practice the very skills that the world demands students master: Confidence, perseverance, recognizing and controlling emotions, goal-setting, empathy, civility, building and nurturing relationships, and making good decisions are essential skills for us and our children.” Jonathan Raymond
