The Mentor Chippewa program is seeking sponsors for the 2021-22 school year. The Mentor Chippewa program has been a staple in the Chippewa area for the past 33-years; living out our mission to empower the youth of today to become their very best self through the power of mentoring.
During the 2021-22 school year we are proud to partner with the Chippewa Falls Area Unified School District, McDonell Area Catholic Schools, and the School District of the Menomonie Area – Menomonie Middle School to bring our in-person mentoring program to their students.
According to a 2017 statistic put out by MENTOR, the National Mentoring Partnership, it costs on average $1,250 to support just one mentoring match for a year (see below for a full breakdown of match support costs.) On average Mentor Chippewa supports 100+ matches annually.
Despite the incredible benefits of having a mentor, many students still do not have one. There are simply not enough adult mentor volunteers, program staff, or financial resources to support all of the needs of the youth in our communities.
As a means to bridge the support gap, Mentor Chippewa has created the following annual sponsorship opportunities:
With your sponsorship support, the Mentor Chippewa program will be able to continue to foster the special bond between mentee and mentor and live out our mission of empowering our mentee students to become their very best self for years to come.
