Become an Academy 4 mentor. The local nonprofit is seeking help from Fort Worthians looking to get involved in our community while also making a positive impact on local fourth graders This school year, Academy 4 will serve 36 schools across DFW and needs 3,000+ volunteer mentors to help fourth graders become leaders.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Each mentor is paired with a fourth grader for the entire year.
  2. During each session, the pairs work on lessons from a research-based leadership curriculum. They’ll set goals to grow while also building transformative relationships that increase the student’s sense of self-worth, enhance their outlook on life, and encourage academic performance.
  3. All it takes is 90 minutes of your time, one Friday a month during the school year.

Ready to get involved? Make a difference and mentor.
