All About Mentoring

Join us at an All About Mentoring session, a learning opportunity for individuals seeking to learn more about mentoring. The session will review information regarding the mentoring program and the role and responsibilities of a mentor, including the next steps to getting started.

The Champions Way

We invite you to join us for Paying For Post High School Education – The Champions Way.
In these one-hour virtual sessions we will share how the Florida Prepaid Foundation Scholarships our students earn through Champions For Learning are leveraged with the support of mentors, volunteers, and the staff to ensure students have a post high school plan and a way to achieve that plan as close to debt free as possible.
