CONNECTING. INSPIRING. MENTORING.

One trusted adult can make a world of difference in a student's life.

At the Restoration Project Foundation, our mission is to connect every child in South Carolina with a mentor who inspires them to develop their talents, achieve academic success, and reach their full potential.

We are just beginning to understand the academic, physical, and emotional toll the COVID-19 pandemic has taken on South Carolina's kids. More than ever, they need academic structure, support, and a trusted adult with a listening ear who can offer solid advice.

There are many mentorship programs throughout South Carolina designed to assess and address the unique needs of the students in their communities. These organizations also need extra support and resources to achieve success. That's where the Restoration Project Foundation comes in.

We partner with existing mentorship programs to provide guidance, support and resources so they can fulfill their unique missions.
