Adopt A Class connects businesses and civic groups with students in our economically challenged schools.
Why Mentor? By pairing teams with individual classrooms, our adult mentors expose the students to a breadth of experiences and training to be job and career ready
For the organization, this engagement fosters a culture of teamwork and increased knowledge of our community’s needs and the challenges faced by our youth
“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
