In March, LSS Mentoring Services announced a campaign to recruit 500 new mentors. Curious about how we are doing? Come hear about our progress at a rally on Tuesday, August 5, from 8-9 AM at Lincoln High School. We are inviting the public to come and get inspired for this coming school year, and we want you to think about becoming a mentor!
While we have successfully progressed towards our goal, the truth is we need more people to step up and become an everyday hero to a student who needs or wants a mentor. LSS will provide breakfast and an inspiring message, and most importantly an opportunity to sign up on the spot.
Mentoring has proven to be an effective tool, and one that LSS believes is critical to a child’s success in school and life. In a recent study, researchers found at-risk youth are 55% more likely to enroll in college when mentored. There is a gap between want and need, and we need your help in ensuring local students are getting all of the tools they can to achieve their dreams.
Please, join us on August 5 to learn more. RSVP today. If you have any questions, give us a call or email.
