MEGA Mentors

Rooted in our core values of “respect, responsibility, effort and achievement,” the MEGA Mentors program
provides 20,000+ hours nurturing students each year. Our volunteer mentors meet with students in small groups (representing a 4:1 ratio in middle and high school and 2:1 ratio in elementary school) twice monthly. Through 75 carefully crafted lessons, our age-relevant curriculum meets key developmental needs along the path from elementary to middle to high school. With a focus on foundational literacy in the early years, character development and life skills during the middle years, and career/college exposure and preparation in high school, we work to broaden students’ perspectives and bolster achievement personally, academically and socially. Through relationship building (with both adults and peers), group mentoring addresses the need for safe places (mental and physical) that many of our mentees would not otherwise receive and allows them to see success in diverse pathways. Further we bring in speakers on everything from architecture to oncology, sponsor field trips including college campus visits, and acknowledge effort and achievement with recognition awards. As an advisor, role model, confidant, and guide, our mentors lead students toward goals that many before found unfathomable. And like the youth we serve, over 90% of our mentors are minorities. They represent a diverse group of corporate and community leaders who reverse negative trajectories and inspire hope, building skills that empower students to excel in the classroom and beyond.
