Adopt-A-School

The Adopt-A-School Project is an initiative where the Guide Right Foundation works with a primary or secondary school in the Arlington or Grand Prairie (TX) to provide mentoring assistance as well as support for requested educational programs as requested by the school administrators. Especially designed for middle school boys grade 6-8.

Program Objectives:
The AGPGRF aims to provide adopted schools with supplies and place our members into local schools to mentor and tutor kids in small groups (3-5 boys per mentor) once per month for 60-90 minutes. AGPGRF creates programs to help kids who are “at risk” or disadvantaged learn how to improve academically and become good citizens through life lessons on character building, leadership and goal setting. We try to show kids how to resist bad influences that could lead them to crime, drug use, gang participation, and violence.
