For more than 30 years, our staff and local volunteers have served our communities by inspiring youth to reach their full potential through mentoring.

As we continue to serve our students, please consider making a gift to the TeamMates Mentoring Program. When you give to TeamMates, your dollars will help support:

  • New Mentor Background Checks
    Help match a young person with a safe, caring adult. One background check for a mentor costs $30.
  • The cost of a Mentor/Mentee match
    Each TeamMates mentor-mentee match costs an average of $450 per year. This is very cost-effective as it’s less than half of the national average.
  • New Mentor Recruitment
    According to the National Mentoring Partnership, 1 in 3 young people will grow up without a mentor. Thousands of kids across the Midwest are waiting for a TeamMates mentor.
  • Local Chapter Support
    School districts and communities with a local TeamMates program rely on the guidance and support of TeamMates’ National Office. By giving to our local chapter support, you are helping volunteers, coordinators, and students meet with trained experts.
  • Quality Match Resources
    In TeamMates, we focus on students’ strengths, while also providing resources for soft skills development. By giving to our quality match resources, you are making it possible for students to learn their strengths.

Again, thank you for making it possible for us to be there for youth in our communities.
