is not what we give, but what we share, for
the gift without the giver is bare."
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
decrease the economic
drain on society that occurs when
youth leave school unprepared or
empower youth to be
the best they can be
skilled employees with better
education eliminate slums by
expanding our youth's vision for a
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.
