Be A Mentor currently serves 392 K-12 students in 26 schools throughout Charleston, Berkeley, and Dorchester Counties, where the need for mentoring programs is imperative.
Be A Mentor primarily partners with high poverty schools within the Lowcountry to fulfill our mission of enabling youth to develop positive relationships with caring adults who empower them to reach their full potential through mentorship.Be A Mentor is committed to continuing our mission to empower the youth in our community through this unprecedented time in ways that are intentional and safe. The need for support grows during a crisis, it does not diminish, and we are here to meet those needs. Our Mentor & Mentee pairs provide close and meaningful relationships for both child and adult. For some students, the friendship they have with their mentor is incredibly supportive and can be one of the most positive relationships they have with an adult.School closures to prevent spread of COVID-19 put an abrupt end to weekly mentoring visits. Despite school closures, we are continuing to support and communicate with our local school partners who are the core of our Be A Mentor Family. During this digital shift, Be A Mentor launched a variety of support systems and programming for our students based off of community needs. E-Mentoring has launched to continue supporting our students educational goals and personal growth from a one-on-one mentoring standpoint. Be A Mentor also is working to digitally support our students and schools duringthis time through events like Virtual Career Dayand digital classrooms. In addition, Be A Mentor is creating curriculum and getting supply kits to students who do not otherwise have access to basic schoolsupplies.
