Be the One believes that “the overall vibrancy of our community is cultivated through affirming relationships with students.” As Be the One continues to grow within Lynden Schools, the organization encourages adults to volunteer one hour each week to meet with a single student.
“Mentoring relationships are proven to enhance student performance in school and to potentially improve the trajectory of their life,” the organization says. “Every student needs a caring adult in their life to listen to them, believe in them and to dream with them. We support healthy mentoring relationships for every interested student that enhances the development of strong virtues and work ethic and the development of marketplace skills.”
