Do you remember you?

​Now is the time to begin planning on how you can contribute to the future of Akron.  One possibility is to mentor an Akron Public School student via iC.A.R.E. mentoring.
Mentors go through a short training, background check and are provided with a activity playbook and guide to provide a framework for developing your relationship with your mentee.  Mentors are given much flexibility in the program and they determine which schools they wish to be matched with and choose the time of each meeting.  Students are matched to mentors by coordinators that take into account the needs and desires of both the student and the mentor.

People of all ages and experience are needed.  No one is too young or too old to participate.  Our youth need caring adults in their lives.  I encourage you to fill out this profile and begin the process.  YOU can make a profound impact on a child’s life.
