Hoboken’s only one-to-one mentoring program matching children ages 7 – 17 with
adult mentors in the Mile Square City.  Our mission is to unearth each
child’s potential through relationship building. Mentors become a trusted friends

classes during the school year as well as Hoboken’s only paid teen internship
program. Join us on #GivingTuesday and be part of unearthing the potential in
the next generation.
“Last year the people
of our city raised over $9,000 in 24 hours! This year we are going for double
so that we can expand the high demand internship, enrichment, and mentorship
programs” said Katie Eades, Executive Director of the startup non-profit. She
continued “this is an opportunity for the residents of Hoboken, friends, family
and local businesses to support an amazing cause and make an impact in our community.”
