Goodwill’s NexStep GED Mentoring Program

Get Involved in Goodwill’s NexStep GED program!

 

WIBA is partnering with Goodwill’s NexStep GED completion program to provide mentors for their students. These young adults tackle the goal of obtaining their GED while working and most of them have other family obligations. It can be a daunting challenge, made more difficult without support and encouragement.

We are asking our WIBA members to volunteer to make a short phone call once a week to a student assigned to them. The conversation is simply to ask how they are doing in class, if they have any particular issues they want to discuss and most importantly, tell them you support and believe in them.

Mentors will be recognized during the graduation ceremony next May. This mentoring project is an important part of the WIBA Business Growth Initiative and can make the difference between trying and giving up, or graduating. NexStep continues to work with these students after graduation to assist them with obtaining a better job, entering college or a technical training program to help achieve their individual dreams.

Please sign up to become a mentor for this worthwhile program by contacting Alicia Holloway at (316) 201-3264 or at alicia@wiba.org. Thank you for making a difference!
