"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!
