Support from trusted adults is critical to student success. WE ARE VB recruits adults from the Virginia Beach community to provide mentorship to at-risk students during the school year. Mentors are trained by the school system and matched with students by our network of school social workers/administrators. Mentors meet with their students 1-2 hours per month at school during regularly scheduled sessions. Topics of conversation can include plans for the future, goals, social life, home life, and of course…school life!

Our goal is to provide trusted adult support where such consistent relationships may be limited or lacking in their home life. The students we support have every reason in the world not to see their education through to the finish line, but a little extra attention and caring is sometimes exactly what it takes to see a student through to graduation. The program has proven to be rewarding for mentors and students alike.

If you are interested in becoming a mentor, please fill out this online form.
