“The program at Goshen High School is a great success! Both students and mentors I speak with share nothing but positive feedback. Students are getting great advice, a sounding board for ideas about their futures and another set of eyes (and ears) on the challenges they face. Mentors are providing extra one-on-one time that teachers (and parents) don't always have the luxury of providing and are bringing their "real-world" experience into the discussions they're having with students. I believe the key to our success is the deliberation with which we paired students and mentors, ensuring that mentors and mentees had something in common — whether that be a hobby, academic interest or other curiosity/enthusiasm — giving them a connection and a place from which to begin their ongoing conversations.” - Teacher, Goshen High School
