"Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Milwaukee has new electronic mentoring program aimed career-focused high school students.
Mentor 2.0 pairs students with local professionals in a secure email relationship. Students correspond with their mentors in a classroom setting, following prompts given throughout the school year.
"We match one student with one adult. The adult is college educated and career-focused," said Amy Chionchio, president and CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Milwaukee. "They are a role model of what we are hoping to open the door for these students."
Students at Veritas High School are among the first group in the country to use the model. Mentor 2.0 is active in only seven other cities in the U.S."
