A young person’s access to mentors and well-being are highly correlated. Guidance from mentors decreases students’ chances of dropping out of school or otherwise falling off the path to college and careers.
Providing students within the Atlanta Public School System with mentors from the 100 BMA membership pool, young professionals who are members of the Emerging 100, and college students who are members of the Collegiate 100 members ensures all Project Success students receive group mentoring or one-to-one mentoring, both of which are integral to all Saturday Academy and summer programming activities. The group mentoring experience frequently leads to long-term, one-on-one mentor relationships.
