Collaboration Goals. Helping Volunteer-Based Tutor/Mentor Programs Grow. by Daniel F. Bassill
Boys Hope Girls Hope helps academically capable and motivated children-in-need to meet their full potential and become men and women for others by providing value-centered, family-like homes, opportunities and education through college.
From the the organization's web site:"Our award-winning program provides important opportunities for hundreds of young people to explore the world and themselves through literature and to free their imaginations through the study and writing of poetry.
Using the book group model, we introduce young people to the rich world of ideas presented to us in books. The books we give them are theirs to keep, helping them to build home libraries.
We work in collaboration with alternative schools, agencies serving pregnant and parenting teens, and after-school programs. We reach 500-600 young people aged 12-21 each year."
Each volunteer mentor (age 18 or older) will be paired one-on-one with a child between the ages of 8-13. All the mentors and children, along with MaineStay staff, will meet in a group setting 6:00-7:30 PM twice each month. Each mentor will interact with his or her youth throughout each session.
