Too many children grow up without the guidance and support they need
to help them along their paths to success. Volunteer to be a mentor - and make
an enormous impact on a young person's life.
According to research conducted by The National Mentoring Partnership, quality mentoring relationships positively impact young people's personal, academic, and professional growth by connecting them with social and economic opportunities.*
Aware of the powerful impact that thoughtful mentor relationships can have on students' lives, Columbus City Schools Superintendent/CEO, Dr. Dan Good established the Office of Student Mentoring Initiatives (OSMI) in 2015 with the goal of ensuring that each CCS student has an opportunity to be matched with a mentor.
