TSIC students in 6th-12th grades are matched with a caring adult mentor who meets with the student at his or her school for one hour per week.
A caring individual enhances the positive development of a child and helps them model their behaviors and attitudes towards a better, more promising future. This support and guidance, in the form of mentoring, contributes to creating an encouraging, nurturing environment that allows children to believe in themselves and their dreams.
Mentoring is the key to success for TSIC students. A student who receives mentoring is 52% less likely to skip school, 46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs, and 27% less likely to begin drinking alcohol.
TSIC will train all mentors, and provide continuous support throughout the mentor-student relationship. Become a mentor, invest in a child's life, and Take Stock in their future today.
