Success Mentors

Family Services is pleased to be the lead organization in the “Massachusetts Success Mentors Collaborative.”  The Collaborative is a partnership with between Family Services, the Mass Mentoring Partnership, Springfield School Volunteers and the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Holyoke.  These organizations have come together to implement the evidence-based “Success Mentors” model, which targets chronically absent students and connects them with a school-based mentor.  This model, developed as part of the “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative, is being funded by the U.S. Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention.

More details coming soon.
