True2U

Connecting with Cleveland’s Future Leaders

In the True2U mentoring program, volunteers  work with small groups of 8th graders in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District to help the students consider their strengths and interests, create a vision for their future and weigh their high school and post-secondary options so they can set off with confidence down the path to their future.

Mentors are still needed. Do you remember being in the 8th grade? Did you know who you were and what you were going to be, or did someone help you think it through? Just sharing your story with Cleveland students, and being a steady partner along the journey, will have ripple effects for the students and our city, for years to come.

Schools As Neighborhood Resources:

Building Youth and Families from the Ground Up.

Our flagship program for community engagement, Schools as Neighborhood Resources opens six school buildings for recreation and enrichment programming for all ages.

SNR is the longest-running school-community initiative in Cuyahoga County. It’s a model of school, family and community collaboration that turns schools into community gathering places designed to improve the educational environment and social development opportunities for students and families.
