When a child's family life is difficult, the influence of a mentor can help boost school performance. The Restoration Project Foundation matches under-served children with proven mentor programs to strengthen their confidence and improve their academic achievement.
How Our Mentorship Program Impacts Anderson SC
Our mission for the Anderson community is to renew hope through education, restore confidence through providing resources and redeem the future through mentor relationships that can help all children and youth in our backyard communities thrive and achieve their fullest potential!
Residing in Anderson, Restoration Project Foundation Executive Director Matt Bailey believes in the value of mentoring relationships. With over 15 years of experience in ministerial and non-profit leadership he's seen the importance of life-giving relationships. “Our lives are meant to be lived with others,” says Matt. “It's vital that everyone has access to a connection with someone who is further along in life that can help give wisdom and direction.”
Through Matt's leadership and the vision and expertise of our mentors, we at Restoration Project Foundation have served close to 180 children across South Carolina and engage in roughly 2000 hours of community service a month. Given the current environment caused by COVID-19 and the stresses it is presently doling out on our local families in South Carolina cities, we hope to offer a stabilizing effect on the youth and the parents that are doing their best to support them on the education front and financially.
Proverbs Mentoring Organization founder Don Peppers
In Anderson, Don Peppers founded the Proverbs Mentoring Organization (PMO) in Pendleton, South Carolina and is presently partnered with the Restoration Foundation Project. Our mission is to enhance youth leadership skills in several areas. As he reaches out to at-risk children, Don first instills in them the importance of being an active part of their community. He shows them that academic performance is as vital as athletic ability. PMO also incorporates religion as the foundation for positive behavior and decisions. And Don demonstrates how an understanding of entrepreneurship is the basis for developing successful career goals. Among the events he organizes for students is Camp Proverbs, which teaches the importance of a strong work ethic, the value of teamwork, and the strength of leadership. Don represents the essence of mentorship that inspires the Restoration Project.
