Over 120 students attended Mother/Daughter Day! They had the opportunity to write letters of appreciation for their mother and were able to accompany those cards with roses. Everyone had a lovely time!
This note from a Midtown mom captures the magic that is happening everyday between MEF students and their mentors:
Hello Mr. Parker,
Just a brief note to inform you and share the great news. After successfully graduating from high school, my son will be attending Middlebury College in Vermont this fall. Thanks for your support and encouragement to our young men in need of male role figures and encouragement. My son truly looks up to you. I can simply assure you that you hold a very special place in my son's heart. May your journey continue to be blessed, always.
Metro is excited to host the annual Mother/Daughter luncheon today! This year the theme is The Infinite Value of a Mother's Heart. Stay tuned!

#throwbackthursday to another one of Metro's service projects! One-on-one students learned about compassion and generosity by using their talents to serve others. Students and tutors baked cookies and shared these treats with residents at St. Luke Renaissance-Greenview Place. #cookiesandcompassion #MEFfieldtrips
Last summer the Midtown boys had a great opportunity to attend the Bears' training camp! What an amazing experience! #MEFfieldtrips
Here's a #throwback of Metro students volunteering at St. Chrysostom! We love to give back to our community in any way possible.

"Metro has been a safe haven. Here is where my dream of going to college has come true. It is no longer a dream. It is a reality." #NationalMentoringMonth
"I like my tutor because he always reminds me that everyday is a new day, a fun day and a learning day." #NationalMentoringMonth
"My tutor has helped me study for my tests much better than what I would have on my own. She always encourages me to go above and beyond my schoolwork. Thanks to her my grade went from a C to a high B in math." (Map student)
"Midtown is special because it helps you to look inside and discover your character, shows you how to interact with people of all ages and walks of life. What I have learned at Midtown has helped me with any problems at home or with friends or classmates at school. Midtown has helped me and a lot of other kids out." (MEF High School Student)
It is #NationalMentoringMonth and to celebrate we will be sharing a few quotes from students throughout the month to recognize the impact our mentors are having on our students. Stay tuned!
