Welcome to the Foundation

The not-for-profit, 501.c.3 foundation, which has close connections with Case Western Reserve University, partners inner-city middle school students (protégés) with local professionals (mentors) that work in a field of interest to the student.

Become a Mentor

Spend Quality Time with Your Protégé
Although we ask that mentors have at least three contacts with their protégé each month (two check up calls & get together once), the quality of the time you spend together can have a direct impact on the success of your mentor/protégé relationship.  We urge you to be creative in the development of your relationship and in the activities in which you become involved as a mentor/protégé team.  To follow are merely some ideas shared by past and present mentors on how you can become involved in the life of your protégé.
