Each One Save One fosters the development of motivated, confident, and responsible children by providing grants, guidance, and training to organizations that provide one-on-one mentoring. We believe that with a mentor each child can have the opportunity to reach his or her fullest potential.

For more than 25 years, Each One Save One has fostered one-on-one mentoring relationships between New Orleans area students and trained adult volunteers. Through school-based mentoring programs, students were offered the opportunity to be matched with a volunteer mentor to meet for one hour each week. With the permission of parents or guardians, students and mentors were able to engage in immersive experiences like field trips, sporting events, and other meaningful activities outside of school. These relationships supported students with positive role models who helped mentees develop confidence and self-esteem and encouraged these young people to strive for success. Over the years, Each One Save One facilitated thousands of relationships that have empowered and encouraged students to live positive lives.

Today, Each One Save One is committed to supporting organizations in our community that continue to provide one-on-one mentoring to New Orleans area youth. Building on years of knowledge and experience, Each One Save One will continue to support the benefits of mentoring by offering guidance and training to area organizations with aligning missions who continue to operate mentoring programs, in addition to awarding an annual grant to support this important work in the Greater New Orleans Area.
