TeamMates Mentoring Program Aims to Influence Osmond’s Youth
Our recruiting blitz for mentors has begun!
In Osmond’s inaugural year, the Board of Directors and Program Coordinators for the Osmond Teammates Chapter would like to say thanks to those already involved and welcome new community members to the organization.
The TeamMates mentoring program was founded in 1991 by Dr. Tom & Nancy Osborne. It is a school-based mentoring program that matches adult volunteers from the community with students anywhere in the 3rd through 12th grades.
Mentors meet once per week to provide support and encouragement to the community’s youth. The goal of the program is to see youth graduate from high school and then pursue post-secondary education.
Youth who are mentored receive support and guidance; measurable improvement in academic achievement, attendance, and disciplinary measures; are more likely to stay in school and graduate; and show improvement in interpersonal relationships.
Our goal is to have our first matches paired and meeting regularly by the end of September.
Locally, a board of directors has been selected to oversee the Osmond TeamMates Chapter.
Watch for events and opportunities about the program.
