We often think of Spring as a time of renewal and growth, and here at Teach One to Lead One (T1L1), we see it in the blossoming potential of our students. Our mission to mentor students in universal principles such as Integrity, Respect, and Compassion is more vibrant than ever.

This month, we’re focusing on the bravery of our students who have shared their personal stories, reminding us that every challenge they face alongside our T1L1 mentors is a step toward their strength and resilience.

Our CEO In-Waiting, Teresa Lutz, and I are humbled by the honor and responsibility of leading T1L1 into a future where even more Hope Mentors come alongside thousands of students nationwide.

The insights from our students’ recent writings are a poignant reminder of the importance of the T1L1 mission.

We thank you sincerely for your financial contributions, which are essential in reaching out to these kids in our nation’s elementary, middle, and high schools during such a vulnerable time.

Your financial support makes a significant difference in the lives of our children and youth.

Please keep our mission, especially our students, in your thoughts and prayers. With your help, we’re cultivating a generation that will lead with strength and integrity.
