This Year's Project: Mentor recruitment
About Our Organization
TeamMates is a school based youth mentoring program started by Dr Tom and Nancy Osborne in 1991. The mission of TeamMates is To positively impact the world by inspiring youth to reach their full potential through mentoring. The goal of the program is to see youth graduate from high school and pursue post secondary education, trade school or military. To reach this goal, youth meet once a week with a caring adult who serves as a mentor. This match between a mentor and mentee can become a life long friendship. Mentors give youth a sense of hope, purpose and vision.
Mentors come from all walks of life. They can be young adults or retired professionals. What they have in common is a genuine desire to positively influence young people. Maywood Public School has been involved with Teammates for over 10 years. In our Teammates program you don't have to be an expert in 5th grade math, you just have to BE THERE.
Our current projects are to add to our chapter scholarship fund and quarterly events for our chapter. We also hope to attend the Husker spring football game as a chapter. To learn more and apply go to www.TeamMates.org or call Maywood Public Schools 308-362-4223. Thank You for your support!!!
Current Project: Mentor recruitment
The Maywood Teammates chapter's goal for 2020 is to recruit more mentors to join our organization to meet with students in our district. This creates a positive school-based relationship in a positive environment and offers the student someone to talk to each week.
Our Chapter would also like to continue to grow our schlarship fund so that we are able to give more students a scholarship when they meet the requirements for school and the Teamates Program.
Maywood Teammates also uses funds to purchase Teammates t-shirts for our mentees so that they can represent our chapter at school events and volunteer opportunities in a positive way.
We appreciate any support that you can offer. Thank You!!!
