We need to know...
We have been working hard to get all of our mentors and students matched and meeting. We need to know if you:
  • mentored last year and have not heard from the volunteer liaison to start your mentoring sessions;
  • taken the mentor training and have not been matched to a student;
  • you are unable to mentor.

Please use the SUGGESTION BOX  to let us know.
We recorded the Lunch Pals Summit Presentation "Chicken Soup for the Soul" Please watch the Video Recording for your personal, professional, and mentoring relationships.
This year we will be hosting a series of webinars to support your mentoring experience.

Lunch & Learn Mentoring Webinar - Topic "Relationships Building"

  • What was the best thing that happened?
  • What is one thing you learned?
  • Who did you get to know better?

Lunch Pals Spotlight!!!
This month we are excited to spotlight Marc and his mentee: This is what Marc shared with us... Thank you Marc for sharing your story!
"I've been with my lunch pal going on 4 years. The first time we met he barely spoke a sentence. Today he's an open book. I am always encouraging him and letting him know I'm there for him and I've seen his confidence grow leaps and bounds. This has led to significant improvements in his behavior, academic performance - most noticeable is the improvement in his reading! I strongly believe that my involvement is having a life altering affect on the trajectory of his life and on mine. "
“A  mentor  is someone who allows you to see the hope inside yourself.” ~Oprah Winfrey
