Mentoring Since 2003
In 2003, two East High parents, Jessica Pearson and Caren Press, created the A+ Angels Mentor Program to pair selected students with volunteer mentors who offer guidance, support and encouragement, as well as help with academic and life skills.
Mentors meet with their students weekly in a structured class setting and communicate with them throughout the week as often as is comfortable for both. The goal is a durable and trusting relationship that will provide a steadying influence throughout the often turbulent high school years.
Since its inception, the program has had over 500 mentor-student pairs. Learn more about how to become a mentor.
