“I am so happy.  I feel Sheryl is coming out her shell. She is excited to show her report card, do her homework in front of us, and is ready to answer questions when we play the trivia games together. Again it is all thanks to you!”

Welcome to Be a Mentor

Mary and Angel.

Be A Mentor (BAM) strives to help every child with an unfulfilled promise in the greater Charleston area by matching them with a caring mentor. Be A Mentor has recruited over 1,000 mentors since 2004 for Charleston’s leading mentoring organizations. While still able to refer volunteers to partner organizations, BAM has established and continues to expand its own mentoring programs to encourage people to join the mentoring initiative in the Lowcountry!

Just 3-4 hours a month gives a child:

  • Someone to look up to.
  • Higher self esteem.
  • Better school attendance & better grades.
  • More confidence.
  • A chance to succeed.
