Success Mentoring

“I have had Angela Pillow as a mentor from the beginning of this year. I love and enjoy my weekly meetings with Angela and how she has helped me to succeed greatly in school and any other area of life. She has been nothing short of caring and motivating me constantly to do the best I can because I know she believes in me and my abilities. She is one of my biggest supporters and I have been grateful for the opportunity to have her as my success mentor.”

– Folashade Gbajumo, Junior at Lincoln Northeast High School

An academics-focused program, for participating Lincoln area Middle Schools and High Schools, that pairs students with a City Impact Coordinator for group and one-on-one mentoring to create accountability and support.
