Report Card Mentoring is a part of United Way's Success After 6 program. Three to four times a school year at Youngstown Community School, MLK Elementary and E. J. Blott Elementary, adult mentors from the community meet with students to discuss their report card grades and write out goals for the upcoming grading period.

Why should you be a mentor?
"I am not sure what impact I am making with the students that I am mentoring. However, I know that they have had a very positive impact on me. The light in their eyes, their manners, their desire to be successful, their goals, and more importantly, their efforts to be the best person they can be each day. I am thankful to hear about their goals; and when they read the Lebron James Promise out loud to me, it puts a smile on my face!"
Brian Wolf, Mentor at Youngstown Community School.
"My experience as a mentor has been amazing! The thing that touches me the most is when I’m sitting at the table awaiting one of my students. They stand in the doorway, look over the room to see if I am there and when they see me a HUGE smile comes to their face! That look/smile is priceless and contagious! That smile means it matters."
Michael Schrock, Mentor at Youngstown Community School
