Matches caring adults with students (grades 2-16) to help them attend school regularly, improve their self-esteem and interpersonal relationships, and encourage post-secondary employment. Options include one-on-one mentoring, group mentoring, worksite mentoring, and college mentoring.
One-to-one Mentoring: Matches caring adult mentors with students on a one-to-one basis; grades 2-12 and students within their first two years of college.
Co-Mentoring: An opportunity where two adults share in the mentoring of a student. This mentoring option offers great flexibility and is oftentimes the preferred choice for young professionals. Enjoy all the elements of one-to-one mentoring but share it with someone else (co-worker, spouse, friend)
Group Mentoring: This program offers exceptional flexibility. A team of mentors shares the responsibility of meeting with a group of students on a regular basis. Focus areas can include social-emotional competencies, life skills, anti-drug, financial literacy, and more. Programs vary based on the group of mentors, students, and school needs.
Girls Club: Serves girls grades 4&5 with a focus on self-care, career exploration, academic success, and social-emotional well-being.
Saturday Hoops: Supports students of all ages, focuses on positive role modeling, and includes activities such as basketball, arts, crafts, and reading more.
Corporate Mentoring: Matches corporate partners with students to focus on academic success, work readiness skills, and job site visits. Examples include PNC Scholars and P&G FAAN Mentors.
UC Med Mentors: Matches elementary students with 1st year medical students from The University of Cincinnati. Focuses on computer literacy, academic success, and exposure to new opportunities for students. Medical students increase their cultural competency and can use the mentoring experiences as an elective credit toward their degree.
