Mentors prepare students to have successful careers and personal lives through the development of character values, goal setting, and strategic plans. Students find their mentoring experience invaluable. Mentoring provides students with an opportunity to learn about other professions, and to meet someone outside the classroom who can provide guidance, share personal and professional experiences, and serve as a role model. Winning Futures makes it easy because we provide mentors with a structured setting and topic-based activities to complete with their mentees.

Volunteer at Event
Winning Futures hosts two large fundraising events each year. Our Corks and Forks Wine Event takes place in February at the Townsend Hotel and the Lear Golf Classic happens in September at the Indianwood Country Club in Lake Orien. Volunteers assist at the event by pouring wine, directing guests, taking photographs, etc.
Winning Futures awards students continuing-education scholarships based on what they have learned during the program. Students are eligible to apply for the scholarship while enrolled in our program with good-standing attendance. Test scores and GPA are not considered for their application and they can use the funds for any type of continuing education. To apply, students write an essay about their five-year strategic plan and participate in a mock interview to practice the skills they have learned. Local business and community leaders score the essays and volunteer as interview judges to give the students real-world experience. The sign up is now available for both essay readers and interviews. Click on the link below to see the dates, times, and locations that are available.
If you are interested in any of these opportunities, please complete our Interest Form and we will be in touch about how to sign up.
