The 2014 school year marked the beginning of a new TeamMates chapter at Wilcox-Hildreth Public School.
What is TeamMates?
The TeamMates Mentoring Program is a school-based one-to-one mentoring program that began in 1991. Tom and Nancy Osborne founded the TeamMates Mentoring Program 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 a per week with a caring adult who serves as a mentor. Mentors are volunteers from the community who have dedicated themselves to making a difference in the life of a young person. Mentors support the strengths of the youth and help build a sense of hope, purpose and vision. The youth in the TeamMates program are called mentees.
What is the Mission of TeamMates?
The mission of the TeamMates Mentoring Program is to positively impact the world by inspiring youth to reach their full potential through mentoring.
