Reaching Out to Kids Since 1995
The TriVillage Mentor League offers mentoring-related experiences to school-age children in partnership with teen and adult volunteers to promote well-being and volunteerism.
Founded in 1995 as an initiative to offer more youth support locally, we are a nonprofit organization serving the central Ohio TriVillage communities of Marble Cliff, Grandview Heights, and Upper Arlington.
Mentoring & More After-School Mentoring Program
TriVillage Mentor League plans and manages after-school mentoring programs for elementary school children. From the start, this effort has been the foundation of our work on behalf of young people in our community.
Our Mentoring & More after-school program matches elementary school kids with high school student mentors. Over the course of the school year, teen mentors and kids spend time together, participating in a variety of activities.
Mentoring Makes a Difference
Children who receive mentoring frequently improve their school performance and social skills. According to Big Brothers Big Sisters’ previous annual evaluations of central Ohio after-school mentoring programs, over 60% of the participants improve their academic performance. Even more report a more positive sense of the future. Nearly 80% report greater self-confidence and an increased capacity for expressing their feelings.
TriVillage Mentor League collaborates with local Tim Horton’s franchise owners to nominate TriVillage area children to attend Tim Horton’s Children’s Foundation summer camps.
Big Brothers Big Sisters Partnership
TriVillage Mentor League works in partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters to assist families seeking a traditional big brother or big sister match for a child. We recruit and assist potential local adult volunteers for BBBS.
TriVillage Mentor League selectively awards college scholarships to high school seniors that participate in TVML programs from its John Miller Scholarship Fund.
