The ‘Til Next Time Mentoring Program was developed to help create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships between positive adult role models and youth facing challenges in their personal, social and academic lives.
TNT serves youth in the Benton-Carroll-Salem Local, Port Clinton City, Danbury Local, Put-in-Bay, Woodmore Local and Genoa Local schools. Combining supportive and fun activities, training on implementing the 40 Developmental Assets, and other mentor/student opportunities, we strive to provide long-term benefits to the youth we serve.
TNT started in the spring of 2013 in the Benton-Carroll-Salem School District by Judy Peters, the then Director of Student Services, in collaboration with Judge Kathleen Giesler of the Ottawa County Juvenile Court. Their vision was to provide all students “in need” an opportunity for additional support in the form of a mentor.
The program had shown such success in BCS schools that Chris Galvin, the Director of United Way of Ottawa County, wanted to see the program expand to all Ottawa County schools, The program first expanded to Port Clinton City Schools in the fall of 2014 with Danbury to follow in the fall of 2015. Beginning in the fall of 2017, TNT will have reached its goal to serve all school districts in Ottawa County.
