Temple Israel has teamed up with the TeamMates Mentoring Program to provide youth in our community caring adult mentors. The TeamMates Mentoring Program is school-based one-to-one mentoring program that serves youth grades 3-12 with a mentor that visits the school for one hour once a week to help them reach their full potential. Mentors with TeamMates spend their time playing games, talking, encouraging the students, and helping them see the good in themselves. There are currently hundreds of kids in the Omaha metro area waiting for a mentor. We are encouraging all members of our congregation to stand up to the challenge and become a TeamMates mentor. It only takes one hour per week. Applications are available at teammates.org.
