Mentors are a key part of the ‘caring community' surrounding our boys. Mentoring is defined as a sustained, positive relationship between a youth and an adult. As a mentor, you make a commitment to spend one hour each week at lunchtime with a San Miguel student. All you need to give is your guidance, support, and attention. Playing games, listening to a description of the last athletic event, sharing your experiences - the quality time that you spend with your mentee can have a life-long impact.
There are no special requirements to become a mentor. Our mentors are men and women of all ages coming from varied backgrounds. Current mentors include college students and retirees, teachers and lawyers, artists and police officers.
Mentors complete a background check and participate in an orientation before meeting their mentee. A commitment of at least one school year is requested - many of our mentors stay with a student for four years.

San Miguel is more than a school. We are a corps of dedicated faculty, staff, students, parents and community members who provide immeasurable love and support to the boys of San Miguel. We are all dedicated to the betterment of the boys in our care and we provide more than academics, moving beyond the classroom to impact the life of each boy, one at a time.
Our community consists of many partnerships, including Brown University, Providence College, St. Sebastian’s School, and Greenville Baptist Church. These organizations partner with us to provide food, school supplies, mentors, and tutors to our boys. The goal is to level the playing field with their peers from more affluent communities. We are grateful to our community partners for their dedication and support. With their help, we can change the trajectory of each boy’s life. And when we have changed the path of each boy’s life, we have transformed the future of each boy, his family and his community for generations to come.
