MBK Success Mentors Initiative is the nation’s first-ever effort to scale an evidence-based mentor model to reach and support the highest risk students -- using existing resources already linked to schools, and the metric of chronic absenteeism to drive school and life success. Chronic absenteeism is often the first flag for a school that a student may be at risk of dropping out of school. The MBK Success Mentor initiative will officially launch in school districts in 10 MBK cities this week, and another 20 MBK cities will join this effort this spring. Over the coming months, mentors will work with students in the 6th and 9th grades across 30 high needs school districts, with the goal of eliminating chronic absenteeism in these grades -- reaching over 250,000 students over the next three years.
