Why Pitch In?
Our Mentors and Partners
With mentor support, students develop a broader understanding of establishing goals and taking advantage of future opportunities. By working with school faculty and local area partners, we’ve designed dynamic interactive activities, presentations, educational worksheets and projects to engage students to reinforce and sustain learning.
