The Adopt A Class model positively impacts the schools AND businesses in our program. For the school, our program provides access to a variety of mentors and resources. For the organization, this engagement fosters a culture of teamwork and giving back in an authentic way.
Our approach to group mentoring is unique. We pair teams of mentors (also known as adopters) with a classroom teacher for a full school year. Throughout the year adopters visit their class regularly. They also take their students on field trips, exchange pen pal notes and most importantly, they expose our students to a breadth of experiences and a wide variety of careers.
