The power and promise of mentoring will be highlighted this weekend when Mentor Racine is featured on Racine & Me on FOX 6 Now.

Mentor (and Racine police investigator) Melissa Diener will appear with her student, Darianna, to explain the nuts and bolts of the program but also talk about what they each get out of participating.

Mentor RUSD pairs volunteer adults with students in grades 4 – 8 who have been identified by teachers, social workers and parents. Mentoring focuses on improving academics, setting goals and fostering the relationship between the student and a positive role model.

Members of SOAR of Racine, John 23 Educational Center, and Godfathers Club also appear in the segment.

Racine & Me airs at 6:30 a.m. Saturday on FOX 6 (channel 6).
