On May 14 we brought together our entire mentoring community including parents, teachers, friends and family to celebrate yet another year of impressive student achievements with Caesar Chavez School in North East D.C.
There are high school students all across the greater Washington D.C. area that need caring adults guiding them through school and helping them reach their goals. Our mentors prepare youth for the future by caring for them today.
Inspired by seven seniors from T.C. Williams H.S. who performed their slam poems at our May 1st anti-drug youth rally, David Mineta, from the Office of National Drug Control Policy invited these students along with Mentor to share their poetry with the entire staff of ONDCP at the White House on May, 30th.
