We serve by using the “Caring Eyes” Strategic Approach
In the past, adults were not afraid to approach teens or youth when they saw them doing something inappropriate and teens respected them as adults.
Today, most adults are afraid to confront or approach teens and teens don’t respect them. To reduce this difficulty National Impact Mentoring has incorporated a “Caring Eyes” approach to mentoring our youth.
Our “Caring Eyes” strategic approach is to recruit and hire mentors from the communities and neighborhoods in which our students live. This recruitment strategy provides our mentors to the opportunity to interact with our students and/or their families both at school, at home, and in their neighborhoods. This wrap around approach puts us in the best position to help our students stay accountable to themselves and their families at all times.
Our vision is to become an organization that is recognized for the impact we have made in the lives of each student and family we serve.
