Our mentors come from all different backgrounds, but they all share a passion for supporting our children. TRUE Mentors is built around the idea that through a healthy encouraging relationship we unearth our greatest potential. When a child has the love, support and encouragement from a dedicated mentor and friend, there is no end to the possibilities life presents.
Mentors in TRUE Mentors are:
When we are able to step outside ourselves and give back, an amazing thing happens; we impact not only the lives of those around us but our own lives as well. Our mentors change the course of their child's life as well as their own. But don't take our word for it, here is what our mentors have to say:
"This year, mentoring has impacted my life by making me more aware of circumstances other people face in their lives, and how simple gestures can make a huge difference. Everyone is different and therefore faces different challenges on a daily basis that impact them. By mentoring, I have become more self-aware of these differences, more open minded, and more driven to help make a difference. I have realized that the most simple gestures or words can go a long way. Mentoring has also given me more of a feeling of self-satisfaction when I see and hear firsthand that I have made a difference." - Mentor, 2011
TRUE Mentors encourages Mentors and Mentees to create their own schedule and engage in activities they both enjoy. In partnership with the Boys and Girls Club of Hoboken, we offer classes once a week for our mentors and children to participate in together. Check out our great list of activities on the calendar of events.
