We believe in equal education for all. We believe that all children deserve an equal opportunity to share in America's bounty through education and coaching. We believe in working with public and private organizations to bring resources and attention to the needs of students to improve their success rate. We believe that it takes a village to raise a child. Because of these beliefs, we are committed to our mission of growing this movement and making African-American students become more successful in Chesterfield County Public Schools.
The organization, since its inception has grown to nearly 100 volunteers supporting four schools. We mentor and deliver life and social skills training.
MEGA Mentors has developed into the premiere mentoring program for Chesterfield County Public Schools. When this group was formed just a few years ago, with a few men who wanted to make a difference in the lives of our youth, it was difficult to envision how this dynamic organization would evolve. Today, MEGA Mentors recruits and trains a diverse group of professionals whose mission is to make a positive measurable difference in the lives of African American students in Chesterfield County Public Schools. Students at several middle and high schools in our county are engaged in mentoring, forums, seminars, college tours, and wholesome recreational activities. The positive impact of MEGA Mentors on our students, families, and community cannot be measured. On behalf of the students and employees of Chesterfield County Public Schools, I am indebted to outstanding men and women who serve as MEGA Mentors volunteers. Your good deed will live on for a generation and beyond.
