Man 2 Man Mentoring - launching in march
YMCA Potomac Overlook is launching an onsite mentoring program in March 2014! Designed to give middle school boys a positive role model, students will be paired with high schoolers for sessions twice a week through the end of the school year. Mentor and mentee pairs will cover:
- Academic achievement
- Life skills development
- Health and nutrition
The high school students will receive a monthly stipend and help mentees to:
- Aspire to education excellence
- Prepare for higher education and employment
- Improve academic performance
- Increase knowledge of general health practices
If you have a high school male student or middle school student who would benefit from this program, please contact our Associate Executive Director, Lucresha Murphy via email
. Look forward to more information regarding an information session to be held later this month!
