David and Molly Boren Mentoring Initiative
In 2003, Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence founder and chairman David L. Boren challenged public school foundation leaders across the state to “harness the goodness of Oklahoma” by mobilizing volunteers in their communities to become mentors for children in need.
“Think what would happen if all at-risk children in this state had mentors —someone to spend time with them, to tutor them, to love them,” he said. “Think about how it would transform this state. It would be revolutionary!”
Inspired by Boren’s outspoken passion for mentoring and the proven impact of mentoring on academic performance, the Foundation has launched the David and Molly Boren Mentoring Initiative. The five-point program draws on the statewide resources of the foundation to promote school-based mentoring and provide resources, training and networking throughout the state.
These mentoring resources are provided as a service of the Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence, and links to other mentoring programs and resources do not necessarily represent the policies and positions of the Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence.
