For Mentors

TeamMates provides support and encouragement to students through one-to-one, school-based mentoring.

Our goal is for mentees to develop safe, positive relationships with their mentors and for those matches to last through high school graduation. The impact of a TeamMates mentor in the life of a young person is remarkable, with mentees being more hopeful and engaged and seeing improvements in their attendance, behavior, and course performance.
