THE STORY:

In a unique mentoring initiative students from Newark's Barringer High School were challenged by their inspired adult mentors who worked at Newark Liberty International Airport in Newark, New Jersey to imagine what their FUTURES would look like. From career choice to clothes and hairstyle. Then with the help of our "FASHION MENTORS" the youth were the focus of a real "FASHION SHOOT" and transformed into their future selves!

Studies tell us that youth who can clearly see a future for themselves are less likely to engage in risky behavior (teen-age pregnancy, drug use, alcohol use, criminal activity).

The students in the "...because we are eagles." mentoring initiative see robust and real futures for themselves and the mentors assist them in developing a strategy to achieve that future.

We are excited about the promise this pilot has shown and are looking forward to working with twenty additional students in the 2010 - 2011 school year!

Help us reach our goal of transforming the lives of Newark youth through Mentoring!

And to our students...remember when they ask you why you dream so big and fly so high...tell them...
"...because we are eagles!"
