“It’s relationships, not programs that change children. A great program simply creates the environment for healthy relationships to form between adults and children. Young people thrive when adults care about them on a one-to-one level, and when they also have a sense of belonging to a caring community.”---
Bill Milliken, Founder and Vice Chairman of Communities in Schools and author of Tough Love and The Last Dropout.
DONATIONS:

"It is not what we give, but what we share, for the gift without the giver is bare." --Unknown

 
Through monetary support and in-kind contributions, community, corporate and business sponsors can help us reach our goal of serving up to 50 youth in this school year. With continued sponsorships, we can impact more youth, and our cost per youth will decrease because of fixed administrative and operational cost.

Another way our business sponsors can contribute is by offering their employees time off to spend a minimum of three hours per month to mentor a student at school or in school-related activities. You and your employees will visibly be investing in the community without sacrificing safety or personal time with family.
In return for your contributions, financial or in-kind, The Mentoring Group works to:
  • decrease the dropout rate of youth in our community schools
  • decrease the economic drain on society that occurs when youth leave school unprepared or undereducated
  • empower youth to be the best they can be
  • produce better skilled employees with better education eliminate slums by expanding our youth's vision for a better future
  • take away the need and cause of violence, and produce youth who reinvest in the community.
Beyond that, the real reward comes from knowing you or your business helped to empower and enhance the quality of life.
