Red Sox Mentoring Challenge
A shortage of volunteers means that almost 5,000 kids are currently on waiting lists for mentors across Massachusetts.
Now you can step up to the plate and become a mentor through the Red Sox Mentoring Challenge
For the second straight year, the Boston Red Sox have teamed up with the Mass Mentoring Partnership (MMP) to make a difference in lives of children across the state of Massachusetts.
Thanks to this partnership, individuals (or workplaces) that wish to become mentors will automatically be eligible for 2007 Red Sox-related rewards like:
Tickets to Red Sox games
Tours of Fenway Park
A special year-end recognition event at the ballpark
An exclusive Red Sox Mentoring Challenge t-shirt
These rewards are given to mentors at key steps along the way -- such as attending an information session, being matched, and participating in an activity with their mentee (like going to a Red Sox game).
How to get involved
Just visit www.redsox.com/mentors and fill out the prospective Mentor Form.
Mass Mentoring Partnership will then help connect you with a mentoring program that best meets your interests and geographical location.
With thousands of kids on a waiting list for a mentor across the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, finding even one or two new mentors can make a difference!
