MISSION: To assist youth in the preparation for life in the “real world” as well rounded adults through hands on learning experiences and mentoring on money management, civic involvement, personal health and professional development.
Were you prepared for the real world when you entered it? I mean REALLY prepared to manage your finances, write a resume, be socially involved or cook a healthy meal for yourself after college? If you’ve answered, “Not very”, you’re not alone. 62% of college students rank their school’s effort in preparing them for life after graduation as “poor” to “fair”. This is a pressing issue whether you’re a scholar in college, working to obtain your GED or just trying to figure it out. Mentoring is a necessity for optimal growth and overall development in “real world” preparation. Wouldn’t we all have benefited from a program that focused on doing just that—preparing you for life? Wouldn’t it be great to be involved with an organization that allows you to take the lessons you’ve learned the hard way and help a young YOU navigating a tough terrain?
EVOLVE Mentoring, Inc. is a youth empowerment 501(c)3 nonprofit organization focused on holistically preparing students for life after graduation. Our goal is to assist in the evolution from youth to well rounded adult by acting as a bridge to the real world. Founded in 2011, EVOLVE has since impacted over 230+ students.
