Other Mentoring Programs


The Orlando/Orange County COMPACT program is a business/education partnership aimed at assisting under-achieving high school students - particularly those at risk of becoming school dropouts.

The heart of the program is the mentoring component where youngsters are matched one-on-one with volunteer mentors. These mentors meet weekly with their students providing guidance, support, academic assistance and encouragement.

COMPACT needs business people to serve as mentors to have a positive impact on the life of a young person.
