I left my job in February to work on Mentor Me full-time, because I believe in what we’re doing. My Co-Founder Sean Lissner and I are passionate about building not only great technology, but also great futures.

Did you know that students who meet regularly with their mentors are 52 percent less likely than their peers to skip a day of school and 37 percent less likely to skip a class? According to the National Mentoring Partnership, mentored youth also have a better chance of going on to higher education. Thankfully, there are 3 million kids in the United States who are benefitting from a relationship with a positive adult role model. But, there are also 15 million more kids in need of mentors.

Unfortunately, research has shown that about 50 percent of matches between mentors and youth end within the first few months. These shortened mentoring matches actually do more harm to kids than no mentoring at all.

Mentor Me provides cloud-based mentor matching and management tools that make mentoring more efficient for mentoring programs and for the mentors themselves.

The Mentor Me team is working to change the world by empowering mentoring programs to change more lives.

Help us reach our goal of raising $15,000 by May 16. Thanks for your support!
