Cleveland Central Promise Neighborhood seeking mentors and 8th graders; holding training session Thursday Dec. 5

The Cleveland Central Promise Neighborhood and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Cleveland are launching a new mentoring program for 8th grade students that live in Cleveland’s Central neighborhood. The goal is to provide each 8th grader with a caring adult mentor that will support them as they transition from middle school to high school and on to post-secondary success.

A one-hour training session for adult mentors is scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 5, from 6 to 7 p.m. at the Big Brothers Big Sisters office, 4614 Prospect Ave., Suite 410. They are looking for adults who have four hours a month to offer and 8th graders who would like mentors, with parental agreement.

Call 216-621-8223 to start the process, find out about upcoming information sessions or sign up for the training sessions. Or go to Look for updates on the Promise website as well.

The Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland, which is a ministry of the Sisters of Charity Health System, is the lead Promise Neighborhood partner.
