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 offers students the opportunity to achieve success by providing them college and career planning resources and volunteer mentors to give students assistance, guidance, motivation and accountability to work hard and to ensure they graduate from high school to continue their education either through technical training or earning a college degree. It is a multi-year commitment for 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 strives 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. Students and their families, mentors, school coordinators, and Foundation staff all work together through the STAMP program and are instrumental in helping students pursue their post-high school education and career goals.
