This is where the magic happens! America Mentors uses a proven curriculum that enables guided interactions between mentor pairs, fostering strong relationships through timely and relevant conversations. Mentors commit to 1-2 hours a month and connect with their mentees primarily by text, phone or email. This relatively small time commitment produces a big impact.
There’s an old saying: “What gets measured, gets done.” America Mentors incorporates assessment tools to help its education partners measure their program’s impact and enable continuous improvement.
