2016 -2017



     The core of our success is our mentor program. Mentors provide an essential element of a program linking the student to a support and motivating adult that fills a very essential gap in the development of the student.

    A mentor is a caring, compassionate adult who chooses to devote their time to a young person, offering them support, guidance, and encouragement. If you can donate 30 (thirty) minutes per week, you can change a life by helping a child build a solid foundation of values, establish goals, improve their academic and life skills, while developing their self-esteem and confidence.


    Our success rate at Take Stock in Children is a result of a comprehensive approach provided by our program. One of the key and proven success factors is the role of the mentor. More and more people want to have a lasting, profound impact in their community. They understand that the commitment of becoming a mentor can change a child’s life while helping them grow personally.


    Our program currently monitors fifty-four (51) active students enrolled in Citrus County’s middle & high schools.

    One of the positive influences provided to each student who participates in the program is: Guidance from a trained caring mentor who meets with the student once a week in their school and provides guidance, support, academic assistance and a “friend” to whom they can relate. 


Wouldn’t you like to have someone think of you as their life-changing, trusted mentor?
