Last Thursday, March 14, 2019 DonCARES of Philadelphia, Inc. mentor Giovanni and his 12th grade mentee Kris enjoyed dinner at Marathon Grill in Center City. Giovanni is a astute scholar at Temple University who is also a member a Strong Men Overcoming Obstacles Through Hard Work (Temple Section). Giovanni's mentee Kris is a motivated senior at The U School in North Philadelphia, and grew up a few blocks away from Temple University.
As the first students matched during the 2018-2019 school-year, Giovanni and his mentee Kris have been matched since late September. During their weekly meetings, the two scholars work on homework assignments, Kris's senior multi-disciplinary project, and work on college admissions essays.
