Lunch Buddy Program

We provide lunch buddies to several elementary schools in Guilford County.

The lunch buddies will:

  1.  Assist the teachers in the 5th grade group with traveling to and from the cafeteria
  2. Have an educated conversation with the mentee
  3. Motivate mentee 
  4. Help clean the cafteria
  5. Sign in and out with the receptionist


Tutoring & Homework Assistance

We offer tutoring sessions twice a week to help the boys retain information, apply and practice what they learned and improve their performance in the classroom.

Tutoring sessions are conducted at Leaders of the New School's Center. Each student is required to submit report cards quarterly to measure growth and program effectiveness.

Our goal is to help every mentee that we encounter achieve academically and maximize their potential.    


Young Leaders Program


The program will be conducted on some Saturdays from 12-3pm. We seek to engage the young men in skill development, team building and social activities. 

We will discuss various topics such as:

  • Respect
  • Manhood
  • Leadership
  • Community Service
  • Finances
  • Higher Education 


 Leaders of the New School mentors and volunteers serve as a professional role models during the school year by listening and encouraging each student. The overall purpose of the mentor relationship is to show the students the real-world applicability of academics. We aim to draw connections between what’s being taught in the classroom and what our students will do in future.  


DOT Adopt-A-Highway & GTA Bus Stop

We adopted a highway (Hicone Road) and a GTA bus stop to help keep the environment clean in the city of Greensboro, NC.
