Could you invest in the life of a child?
Affinity Mentoring’s mission is to facilitate equitable growth in academics, social emotional skills, and self-esteem through mutually beneficial mentoring relationships. We believe in cultivating a brave space that amplifies the voices of young agents of change in a diverse and inclusive community.
We provide individual, one hour per week mentoring with trained, safe, supportive adults to support the growth of leadership and social-emotional skills, as well as math and literacy skills.
We currently serve students [K-8th] at:
- Burton Elementary School
- Burton Middle School
- Godfrey-Lee Early Childhood Center [NEW 2019]
- Southwest Community Campus
How much difference can one-on-one time for one hour, once per week, make in the life of one child? The answer to that question is visible every week on the faces of the students, as volunteers enter into supportive and caring relationships with them. It is in these relationships that at-risk school children are given the emotional, social, and academic support they need to succeed. The transformation may seem to start small, beginning with simple changes in attitude and behavior, yet couple this with increased attendance and academic performance, and you have one hour a week which truly changes a child’s life.
