Through our partnership with Take Stock in Children, Beaches Habitat pairs middle and high school students with a caring adult mentor.  Mentors are asked to meet with the student at his/her school for an hour each week for a minimum of one academic year. Training and support will be provided by Beaches Habitat. Mentors provide academic and behavioral motivation, guidance, friendship, and support to their Take Stock in Children student.  Please call Sue at (904) 343-3026 for details.
