This is a dream that is becoming reality. Thanks to local businesses, churches and schools the demand for this program has went through the roof causing this idea to go into motion. We are still in the start up phase only able to work with a few inner city schools in Memphis. However, we are wanting to branch out into all Memphis schools as well as set up a base in Knoxville, TN. We have been in contact with schools in Knox County and are ready to roll out the program. However we need money to make it happen. So, what is Magic Mentor? It's everything! We provide mentors for students in their area of choice, the mentors are volunteers in the professional community from different fields of expertise. Our main focus is driving personal and academic success of each individual student. We look to raise the high school graduation rates within the communities we serve as well as the standard and quality of living. We do this through the needs met with our mentors, tutoring services as well as being involved with the community. We are feeding the minds of these young people showing them there are endless possibilities if they apply themselves. We provide the tools and support system to make this happen, while also providing a meal program to insure students will not go hungry any day of the week. We are completely funded through donations in the communities. We are ready to make the move but are a little short on what is needed for a permanent home in Knoxville. So please find it in your heart to give to this cause, to invest in America's youth and future.
