The Power of Relationships
We are an award-winning, school based mentoring program that has been pairing caring adults with Guilford, Connecticut's children for more than 20 years. We mentor students in every school in Guilford, but we always have more children waiting. Help us reach our goal of matching a mentor with every child who wants one. NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY. You do not need to be a Guilford resident.
Mentoring provides meaningful connections that impact the people involved and influence their lives at home, at work, and in their communities. For those who are being mentored, it is linked to improved academic, social and economic prospects. For those who are mentoring, the relationship can build leadership and management skills, expand a mentor’s professional network, and provide an empowering opportunity to give back to the community.
