Starfish Initiative

I'm a Starfish mentor.

Starfish Initiative is a not-for-profit organization that facilitates educational opportunities for economically disadvantaged high school students by giving them a mentor to work with in high school. Having a mentor increases the probability that they’ll attend college.
I’ve been mentoring a Starfish Scholar every year since 2003. Mentoring a teenage boy is much harder than coaching a CEO. What I recall from my high school years back in the day doesn’t help very much.

If you’re interested in mentoring a student, you can learn more about the Starfish Initiative and its mission by visiting their web site:
