South Bend's mentor initiative gets a big boost

Posted:

Calling all mentors. The City of South Bend needs your help educating the youth.

After a year of operation, the city's mentoring initiative has had very few people sign up.

So, today, the group received some support to help get the word out.

The Education Foundation is committed to doubling the number of mentors to 500 over the next two years.

A mentoring director talked about the importance of this program.

"Our jobs as adults as parents as city officials is to give to our posterity," said Director of Mentor South Bend David Boggs. "If we don't do that we don't have a South Bend, we don't a city."
