We live in the same town. We attended the same schools, rode the same buses, and played the same video games. We faced the same challenges -- academically, socially, and athletically.
Our success was not a given. But we worked hard and made good decisions. And now, we're ready to share with your child what we've learned along the way.
We connect with mentees in ways that parents or other caregivers can't. We learn from each other. We respect each other. We impart meaningful skills to our mentees, from academics to sports, music, or dance. And all the while, we model what self-confidence, integrity, and good manners look like.
Pricing is based on the hours per week you choose. We recommend three hours per week, per child. This can be two 1.5 hour sessions, three one-hour sessions, or any combination you prefer. If your child is receiving academic support along with sports or music, we often find sessions of 1.5 hours or even two hours are preferable. Nevertheless, even one hour per week with a mentor can make a meaningful difference!

An important aspect of Role Model Mentors is supporting key members of your community, including families and high school students.
Role Model Mentors offers high school students meaningful work, provides families invaluable support for their children, and our scholarship program enables high school students to donate their time for community service credits, while enabling us to provide free or subsidized mentoring to families who can’t otherwise afford it.
We do this because, well, it's the right thing to do. To learn more about our scholarship program, please give us a call.
Why do we have mentors in our adult life, but not as children? We don’t know, but we’re hoping to change that for good. Mentors are so important – they can teach just like tutors, coaches and teachers, but they do much more. When you learn from someone you relate to and admire, you learn more, you enjoy learning more, and you build a long-lasting relationship.
With Role Model Mentors, you get all of these benefits for your child, for a fraction of the cost of an adult tutor, music teacher or sports coach/trainer. Plus you get the convenience of mentoring right in your home, while employing a terrific H.S. student from your own community.
Take a look at some of these amazing students, and you’ll see why we’re so excited for you to enroll. We can’t wait to find the perfect match for your child!
"We've been matched with a young leader who is strong academically, plays varsity soccer, and most importantly is just a genuinely positive and kind person."
