Each One Save One is a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering children in our community by providing an army of volunteer mentors throughout the metropolitan area. We can easily see the devastation of violence, drugs, teen pregnancy and crime in our communities today but we, as individuals and corporations, can act decisively to effect positive changes and offer concrete alternatives to this generation.  MentorNOLA, volunteer or donate now!

MentorNOLA is an area-wide network whose purpose is to provide mentors for the youth. Each One Save One works with school districts and local government agencies to establish workable mentoring programs where none exist. Our mentors serve one hour during the school day each week for an entire school year. Each One Save One is a school-based mentoring organization, which means our mentors meet in the school during the school day.

The purpose of Each One Save One is to recruit, screen, train, and support mentors. Training, guidance and support will also involve mentees, parents and teachers.

Each One Save One was founded in 1994. Hurricane Katrina destroyed the physical offices of Each One Save One but not the spirit of the caring adults across our community willing to give an hour a week to encourage a young person. Corporations and other businesses provide financial support and/or encourage their employees to spend one lunch hour a week working with a young person at a local school.
