One-on-One Mentoring


The cornerstone of our vision is for students of color city-wide to each have a college student of color as a mentor.  At DonCARES of Philadelphia, Inc. our mentors believe strongly in utilizing education as an essential component in motivating and inspiring inner-city youth in North Philadelphia.  As mentors we believe in using one-on-one mentoring as a method to effectively engage the youth and provide them with services and opportunities that will magnify their learning experience.  By working one-on-one with students, mentors will be able to identify social weaknesses and strengths that classroom teachers are apt to overlook in crowded classrooms. Through visits to museums, universities, and quality time with mentors, students will be presented with opportunities not otherwise obtainable.  


We offer:  


  • One-on-one mentoring a week for one to two hours weekly.  We will meet with the child at school during their advisory or after-school hours.

  • Mentors dedicate half of the time available to help the child with any homework or assignments that may require assistance. The other half of the time will be dedicated to discussion with the child to ultimately connect with them and provide them with positive feedback.  

  • We will provide brief and concise progress reports for the parents and teacher’s  of the child so they will be informed of their child/student’s progress during the time that we are spending with them.
