Thank you for all of the support at the 2015 Big Give. TeamMates was bale to raise over $2,000 for mentor/mentee outings! We are very excited to be able to enhance the events we provide for our mentors and mentees.
“Our Mission is to positively impact the world by inspiring youth to reach their full potential through mentoring.”
The TeamMates Mentoring Program was founded in 1991 by Tom & Nancy Osborne in an effort to provide support and encouragement to school aged youth. The goal of the program is to see youth graduate from high school and pursue post-secondary education. To reach this goal, youth meet one hour per week with a caring adult who serves as a mentor.TeamMates has been a part of Boone Central Schools since 2001.
A mentor is someone who provides a young person with support, friendship, and a positive example. Mentors want to help young people reach their full potential.
One Hour a Week. TeamMates Mentoring Program asks that you make a commitment of meeting with your student for one hour a week in a school setting for a minimum of one year.
Spend time listening and encouraging your mentee. Take some time to have a little fun like playing a game. Share a hobby. Work on a puzzle. Help your mentee develop a resume or just surf the net!
