What We Do
Affinity Mentoring strives to interrupt the cycle of poverty through mentoring relationships that improve students’ academic achievements, social skills and self-esteem.
Every child needs caring, trusted adults to lean on and to guide them. At Affinity Mentoring, we train mentors to be one of those people on a child’s team. Through weekly, school based mentoring sessions, mentors and students develop a partnership and friendship, helping students to reach their full potential.
One hour, once a week, that’s all it takes.
Mentoring has been proven to promote:
- Better attendance
- Better attitudes toward school
- Better chances of going onto higher education.
- Better health
- Better relationships with their parents (mentoring.org)
