Last Saturday, mentors from the Metropolitan Baptist Church and Seton Hall University joined their mentees at Newark’s Eagle Academy for a “Chat n Chew” mentor appreciation event. Sponsored by the Newark Mentoring Movement, the 6th and 7th graders enjoyed food provided by Dinosaur BBQ with their mentors, and had a chance to catch up and build the lasting connections that one-to-one mentoring provides.

A special congratulations to Metropolitan Baptist Church for its 76th anniversary and for being an instrumental supporter of our Open Society Foundation-funded MENTOUR initiative! We are thankful for our mentors everyday for the work they do to help children #Believe2Achieve.
