Our Parity, Inc. Mentoring Program is an innovative one-to-one mentoring program that is charged with enhancing self-esteem, reducing high school dropout rates by increasing high school graduation rates, and increasing the number of college enrollments from the urban core.
We foster the three "A"s of our educational initiatives - Academic Achievement, Attendance and Attitude. Our program has evolved into a program for "Youth Development for Success" with mentoring as the key component. New emphasis is placed on exposing our mentors to future careers and college related opportunities.

"I enjoyed Youth In Government; it was very interesting for me to run for the office of judge. The Parity Mentoring Program was fun and it made me feel more confident about myself, I would love for other kids to be in it too." _Dekara Fields (8th grade)
