Mentoring

The JaxPAL Mentoring Program offers children extra guidance and support through a one-on-one relationship with an adult mentor. A meaningful, monitored, and carefully matched relationship helps motivate each child to overcome obstacles, realize their potential, and become a productive, successful adult. The JaxPAL Mentoring Program is not an academic tutoring program. Each mentor visits a child twice a month for one hour. Mentoring activities may include anything from reading and doing arts and crafts to learning about different cultures and playing sports. All mentor applicants go through a screening process and a Level II background check before acceptance into the program.

JaxPAL is a place where I can come after school to complete my homework if my parents are at work and I have no where else to go.  I used to struggle trying to make the AB Honor Roll at school.  Now I am improving a lot.
