KidGlov, a boutique, full-service advertising, branding and content marketing agency based out of Lincoln and Omaha, Neb., recently welcomed DeMoine Adams, CEO of TeamMates Mentoring, to its podcast, Agency for Change. The episode explored Adams’ work helping school-aged youth reach their full potential.
“Mentoring can have an incredible impact on a child’s life,” said Lisa Bowen, KidGlov vice president managing director and host of the Agency for Change podcast. “It was great to sit down with DeMoine on the podcast to hear first-hand how TeamMates mentors give hope to young people across the Midwest.”
The TeamMates Mentoring Program was founded in 1991 by Tom and Nancy Osborne to provide support and encouragement to school-aged youth. With a mission to positively impact the world by inspiring students to reach their full potential, TeamMates is serving close to 10,000 youth in about 193 communities across Nebraska, Kansas, Wyoming, South Dakota, and Iowa.
TeamMates mentors are volunteers from the community who commit to the program and their students. Matches meet together inside schools for conversation, games and more. Data from the organization shows 85% of mentees express feeling more hopeful after meeting with their mentor.
During the Agency for Change podcast, Adams discusses his long history with the organization, the impact of mentors for kids, and how you can become involved.
“Our mentors are not trained to be tutors or therapists. But through a weekly game of checkers, just 20 to 30 minutes a week, that relationship leads to trust and that trust is what leads to helping students reach their full potential,” said Adams.
The full Agency for Change episode featuring DeMoine Adams can be found on KidGlov’s website, or wherever podcasts are available.
