Program Overview

Let Each One Teach One Mentor Program provides mentoring services to at-risk black male adolescents with the goal of increasing their academic success not only in terms of improving their grades, but also in improving behavior and class attendance, and reducing office referrals and suspensions. The primarily multiethnic mentors also act as role models to participating youths and meet with them on a weekly basis at the youths' school for sessions lasting 16-20 weeks.
