Hero to Hero Scholarship Program
This formal cross-age mentorship program supports the development of relationships between youth who slightly differ in age. Studies show that befriending, supporting and encouraging a slightly older/younger youth is a natural stage crucial to social development. This program differs from other goal-oriented models (better attendance, improved grades, etc.) in that the reliance is on building a relationship between mentor and mentee, and empowering mentors. We believe a more effective peer mentoring model allows the young people themselves to plan, develop, and implement the program over time as much as possible.
H2H Scholarship Program allows:
Former mentees to serve as mentors as they graduate from the program.
Mentors to alter the curriculum from year to year.
Mentors to recruit the next class.
