New York City: Mentoring USA Founder, Matilda Raffa Cuomo and Mentoring USA Executive Director, Stephen Powell, attended the 24th Annual Scholarship and Award Gala Fundraiser for LaSalle Academy.
“On behalf of Mrs. Cuomo and Mentoring USA, I want to underscore how closely LaSalle Academy’s mission aligns with Mentoring USA’s mission. We are thrilled to partner together this Fall of 2015 in a new program for the 9th grade students entering La Salle Academy on the Lower East Side of Manhattan.”
In preparation for the program’s pilot launch, Mentoring USA will recruit, train and screen male volunteers to serve as mentors to the young men of LaSalle during the academic year. The selected mentors will help guide their mentees in developing better self-esteem, achieving academic goals, creating healthy relationships and making positive life choices.
La Salle Academy has been educating young men of diverse cultural, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds with special outreach to those most in need since 1848.
