TeamMates Mentoring was founded in 1991 by Tom and Nancy Osborne in order to provide the support and encouragement youth need to graduate from high school and pursue post-secondary education. TeamMates currently provides a mentor to over 10,200 youth in Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, South Dakota and Wyoming.
The Foundation started the TeamMates Mentoring of Bennington chapter in the fall of 2014, because the administrators and counselors in our district saw a growing need for this type of program. To date, the Bennington chapter has approximately 89 mentor/mentee matches!
If you would like to hear more information, are interested in becoming a mentor or know someone who would make a good mentor, please contact Program Director, Megan Detjens at 402.416.1668 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
