As part of the 100’s partnership with local school districts, the 2015-2016 Team Mentoring Program program connects a team of mentors with 5th and 6th grade boys in an 18 week program. For the 2015-2016 program year the 100 continues partnering with several Indianapolis Public Schools. Team Mentoring will be conducted at Longfellow Academy School 28; James A. Garfield School 31; James Whitcomb Riley School 43; George W. Julian School 57; Ralph Waldo Emerson School 58; Theodore Potter School 74 and H L Harshman Middle School 101. Fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students at these schools will interact with mentors and work with a Success Academy virtual mentee curriculum that incorporates information on Health and Wellness, Education, Economic Empowerment, and Leadership.
As always the goal of Team Mentoring is to help each student become the best young man they can be. Through the Success Academy virtual academy mentors seek to encourage personal development, academic growth, and basic life skills in all students. In addition to working with students, mentors also seek to actively engage parents of students concerning the development of their son(s).
