A.C.T. Mentoring Program
Real Champions of the Lowcountry mentoring Program envisions a community where every youth experiences nurturing relationships and community support, which in turn allows them to develop into their full potential, capable of making informed, responsible decisions as involved members of our schools and our community.
A. C. T. is a mentoring program that now serves children of Bluffton, SC within five of our local schools. Our mentors have made a positive impact on the youth we have served for the past five years. This is evident through improved test scores, improved classroom behavior, and improvement in self confidence.
A.C.T. Mentors are adults who, along with parents and our schools, provide young people with support, counsel, friendship, reinforcement and a constructive example. A. C. T. Mentors are good listeners, people who care, people who want to help young people realize their fullest potential and capitalize on their gifts and talents. A.C.T. are committed to ultimately establish a strong connection with mentees and in turn use that connection as a catalyst for positive change and growth.
We have been recently asked to expand our services throughout Beaufort and Jasper counties. In order to do this we will need to not only recruit but also, provide screening, background checks and training for new mentors. Our new mentees will also have needs that we will have to address such as incentives, activities and recreational programs. A.C.T. of the Lowcountry solicits your time, professional services and financial contribution to allow us the opportunity to expand our services in these communities and continue to "stand in the gap" with a positive adult relationship which is absent from the lives of many of today's youth.
A. C. T. of the Lowcountry ask our mentors to commit to at least one hour per week for 12 months but, we are also in need of volunteers for special events, seminars and training in your area of expertise. Please know that any financial contribution you make will also positively impact the children that we serve. A. C. T. is a registered 501-c3 organization and all contributions are tax deductable. Please make your checks payable to A. C. T. Thank you for your thoughtful consideration of our request. More importantly thanks in making a difference in the life of a child.
A. C. T. was founded in the upstate of South Carolina in early 2000. Our strategy for achieving this vision involves coaching people to use their gifts and talents to their fullest God-given ability, by speaking to various ministries and groups worldwide, and by partnering with businesses to develop effective leaders.
