Mentor Program

Engaging:

We believe that pairing athletics and mentoring engages and helps prepare children during their most formative years.

Connecting:

Our student athletes are partnered with mentors through local universities, including Drexel and the University of Pennsylvania, allowing them to be connected with “near peer” positive role models on a consistent basis. The program includes academic tutoring, preparation for a variety of standardized tests, career and educational guidance, in addition to focusing on the development of standard “life” skills.

Results:

Of the 441 participants in our middle school and high school programs, over 94% advanced in grade level and/or graduated, far surpassing Philadelphia’s average 65% graduation rate.
