Community Mentor Program

Make a difference in the life of
a Pottstown Middle School student!


Become a Mentor…

Why?

Mentoring guarantees young people that there is someone who cares about them, assures them they are not alone in dealing with day-today challenges, and makes them feel like they matter. Research confirms that quality mentoring relationships have powerful positive effects on young people in a variety of personal, academic, and professional situations. Ultimately, mentoring increases a young person’s personal growth, development, and social and economic opportunity.
