LEAD Brevard's Leadership Brevard Class of 2019 Leadership Action Project
Project participants will assist Brevard Schools Foundation in creating a mentor recruitment campaign to increase community awareness of this program, and grow the number of mentors to pair with low-income, at-risk middle and high school students and help keep them on the path to graduation and post-secondary education. This campaign will consist of shooting, editing and producing a video (emotional, testimonial style) with speakers who are already selected that gives viewers an overview of the type of impact having a consistent and supporting mentor has on the lives of these youth.
