What if every kindergartener in poverty had a caring, well-trained mentor committed to walking with them through high school graduation?

Emily commented on 3Degrees Mentoring

Thanks, Jessie! A recent story from an Achiever match:
First grade achiever, Z, was taken to a local state park. She was frozen in awe looking at the large pond. She had never seen one. At the 3Degrees pool party, she came with trepidation and no experience in the water. By the end of our 3 hours together, she was jumping in unassisted and very proud of her accomplishment. Her mentor has had to persevere to keep connection with her. Her family's phone has been shut off and number changed several times in a few short months. Both mentor and achiever are being transformed by the experience.
