Mentor a Student

Take Stock in Children, Inc. is a nonprofit organization, transforming Florida one student at a time. Working in every county throughout Florida, our mission is to break the cycle of poverty for low-income, academically qualified students by providing opportunities for a post-secondary education. We offer college scholarships to students, provide caring volunteer mentors, and instill hope for a better life. Our comprehensive services begin in high school, and include students' transition into college and career.  Locally, Take Stock in Children is facilitated through FUTURES Foundation for Volusia County Schools.  

One of the key and proven success factors of TSIC is the role of the mentor.  They understand that the commitment of becoming a mentor can change a child’s life while helping them grow personally. Can you remember adults who paid attention to you; who believed in you; and who guided you during your childhood? These individuals served as mentors. Wouldn’t you like to have someone think of you as their life-changing, trusted mentor?

Mentoring sessions average 30 minutes and occur at a school near your home or workplace, during school hours. The days and times of mentoring sessions are arranged between the mentor and mentee, depending on their individual schedules and classes. As a result, mentoring is convenient for both students and mentors.

Mentors are needed at all 10 public high schools throughout Volusia County.  

Please contact Shimene Shepard at sashepar@volusia.k12.fl.us if you are interested in becoming a mentor.
