WHY: Winning Futures, a non-profit mentoring and goal-setting program for tri-county middle and high-school students, will hold an Inspiring Hope informational breakfast for potential mentors and volunteers June 27. This free breakfast will be hosted by WXYZ Channel 7’s Chuck Stokes at the Detroit Golf Club.
At this breakfast, guests will discover:
• How they may directly impact the future workforce of Michigan.
• The amazing influence mentors and community members make on students in Winning Futures by helping them plan their futures.
• The many ways volunteering as a mentor, leading the organization as a board member, providing resources as a business partner, or investing in youth as a donor can positively affect the community.
All mentors take part in a program training and orientation session prior to entering the classroom. Activities and lessons are pre-planned and outlined, so all mentors need to do is show up at their class and interact with their students. Winning Futures’ unique program makes it that simple and rewarding to create a difference in a child’s life.
