… we have a small favor to ask. Thousands of people have placed their trust in the Racine County Eye’s high-impact journalism because we focus on solutions-based journalism.

With no shareholders or billionaire owners, we can provide trustworthy journalism that focuses on helping readers.

Unlike many others, Racine County Eye’s journalism is available for everyone to read, regardless of what they can afford to pay. We do this because we believe in information equality. Greater numbers of people can keep track of events, understand their impact on people and communities, and become inspired to take meaningful action.

If there were ever a time to join us, it is now. Every contribution, however big or small, powers our journalism and sustains our future. Support the Racine County Eye from as little as $5 – it only takes a minute. Thank you.

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).
