Mentoring and Youth Outreach

Supporting Future Leaders

Multiple research studies have shown that by adding a mentor in a young person's life, the risk factors of them dropping out of high school or starting to use drugs are cut in half.

On October 1, 2018 the NWFCU Foundation will kick off its annual mentorship program in partnership with Dranesville Elementary School in Herndon, VA for the 2018/2019 academic school year (program runs October 2018 through June 2019).

Our main objective is to provide caring, professional adult mentors to third grade students so they can positively influence this next generation of youth.

Whether it be you, someone you know, or a corporation that is looking for a way to volunteer and give back to the community, please consider signing up as a mentor.

You can make a difference!

Mentoring requires a commitment to meet with your mentee twice a month during the school day throughout the school year, completion of Fairfax County Public Schools Orientation Training, and a background check.
