We are currently Mentoring at Highland Renaissance Academy and Merry Oaks Academy. 


Boys To Men foundation  believes that school-based mentoring produces many positive outcomes for our BTM youth. Our research into school-based mentoring outcomes indicates that our program can:

  1. Improve academic performance, in general, with significant improvements demonstrated in the subjects of science and written and oral language  
  2. Improve the quality of class work  
  3. Increase the number of homework and in-class assignments turned in
  4. Reduce serious school infractions, such as disciplinary referrals, fighting, and suspensions
  5. Increase students’ perceptions of scholastic competence
  6. Reduce skipping classes

​Additional BTM research into school-based mentoring outcomes found that mentored students developed more positive attitudes toward school, were more likely to trust their teachers, and developed higher levels of self-confidence and a greater ability to express their feelings
