Purpose and Outcomes:

RFDC mentors are matched with selected mentees to provide consistent individualized attention, which improves the student’s educational experience and provides a positive role model for school and life success.  Meet-ups with mentees may occur over lunch or before/after school on a school campus. Mentors are required to commit a minimum of one school year of service to their mentee and to facilitate at least two meetups each month. This commitment provides the needed time to build a consistent relationship and necessary bonding with a mentee that is focused on:

  • building a caring and authentic relationship in a safe space

  • augmenting the mentee’s support system and sense of security 

  • improving confidence and expectations for success in school and life
