The Mission of Each One Save One is to facilitate new and support existing mentoring organizations by recruiting, training, screening, placing and supporting mentors with students in the public school system.
Each One Save One is a non-profit organization dedicated to reversing the plight of children in our community through recruiting, training and supporting an army of volunteer mentors throughout the metropolitan area. Amidst the devastation of violence, drugs, teen pregnancy and crime in out community today, the future appears grim unless we, as individuals and corporations, act decisively to effect positive changes and offer concrete alternatives to this generation. Each One Save One is an area-wide network whose purpose is to provide mentors for existing programs. Each One Save One also works with school districts and local government agencies to establish workable mentoring programs where none exist. Our mentors serve one hour during the school day each week for an entire school year. Each One Save One is a school-based mentoring organization, which means our mentors meet in the school during the school day. The purpose of Each One Save One is to recruit, screen, train, and support mentors. Training, guidance and support will also involve mentees, parents and teachers.
