The City of Coral Springs is encouraging residents to take part in two local mentoring programs – Take Stock in Children and 100 Black Men.
Take Stock in Children is a non-profit organization that pairs low-income middle and high school students with caring adults who serve as guides. By mentoring them, these students will receive a college scholarship to a Florida state school. Mentors are asked to only donate 30 minutes a week.
The 100 Black Men of America, Inc. also offer a program called Mentoring the 100 Way, which addresses the social, emotional and cultural needs of children between the ages of 8 and 18. Participants will be trained and certified as mentors.
To find out more about these programs, please stop by the West Wing Conference Room at City Hall, 9551 W. Sample Road, on Friday, May 15 at 11 a.m. Interested residents may also call Jenny Rebour at 954-346-1289.
