Mentorship

The Chesapeake Cares Mentor Program enables our employees to connect with our communities and make a positive impact on the lives of local students.

Now in our sixth year, enthusiasm for our program continues to grow. Mentoring for just one hour a week can help make the 2017-2018 school year even better for local kids.

"There are so many children out in our communities that don’t have that one-on-one time with their parents to express feelings; or just to have time to play games with them; or have them read a book to them. It has been rewarding to have the opportunity to touch someone’s life and give them the time to express themselves. The young child that I had could not wait for me to come each week. It was her special time to shine."

"I really enjoy our Tuesdays together. We get to hang out and play some sports and he gets to talk and discuss some things that may be on his mind. I’m happy to be Andrew's mentor and I’m glad he feels the same way, and requests me on an annual basis."
