Organization Profile

The mission of TeamMates Mentoring Program is to positively impact the world by inspiring youth to reach their full potential through mentoring. TeamMates Mentoring Program began in 1991 with the vision of University of Nebraska Head Football Coach Tom Osborne and his wife Nancy. The program began with twenty-two football players who met with middle school students in the Lincoln Public Schools. TeamMates has expanded and currently there are more than 7,500 matches in 130 communities across Nebraska, Iowa and California!

Project Description

The power of the TeamMates program lies in the connections students make with their mentor during their 1-hour weekly meetings. We are raising funds to update our mentor and student resources. These resources consist of activities and supplies that are utilized by the mentor and student during their meetings.  We hope that by providing improved resources to our mentors, we will be able to better support mentors establishing a strong connection with students through the 1-hour meetings.
