Student Advocacy and Mentoring
Realizing the great impact that mentors have on students, The Foundation has implemented the Student Advocacy and Mentoring Partnership (STAMP). STAMP is a program that will offer students the opportunity to achieve success by providing them college and career planning resources and volunteer mentors to give students extensive assistance, motivation and accountability so they will work hard to ensure they graduate from high school and continue their education either through technical training or attaining a college degree. It is a multi-year commitment to at-risk high school students to invest in their future and increase the high school graduation rate and post-secondary educational opportunities.
The STAMP program will endeavor to accommodate eligible students, match them with mentors, and assist them in acquiring scholarships and grants to cover the cost of attending college or other post-secondary training. The students, their families, the mentors, the school coordinators, and the Foundation staff working together through the STAMP program are key to helping students pursue their post-high school education and career goals.
