Take the Risk

Become a mentor

The greatest factor in turning an at-risk kid’s life around is the mentors in their life. Our mentors develop close relationships with the kids they teach. Some kids have never had a positive influence like a Teach One to Lead One mentor. With only a few months in the program, teachers begin to see the impacts of the mentors’ commitments as students’ grades begin to rise and attitudes change.


Become a charitable organization

You can impact their life by becoming a Teach One to Lead One Organization. If you care about kids, your organization qualifies. Whether you are a charity, a for-profit business or a civic club, you have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of kids and be a true charitable organization. As a partner in this great work, you take the risk from kids by taking on the risk yourself through your efforts and contributions.


Become a Teach One to Lead One school

Teach One to Lead One offers tremendous impact to your student’s lives with no hassle to the administration. When you decide that you want to bring Teach One to Lead One into your school, we make the process incredibly easy and affordable–only $30 per student. We begin by asking you to identify the at-risk students in your school and the teachers willing to give up class time with these students. Many administrators hesitate to surrender school hours. Since beginning in 1996, we have seen teachers gain back that time many times over once their students have begun to incorporate principles like excellence and enthusiasm into their daily lives.
