LINCOLN, Neb. (Press Release) -- The TeamMates Back to School Challenge will take place Aug. 1 to Sept. 1.

This campaign will benefit students across the almost 170 school districts TeamMates supports across Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, South Dakota, and Wyoming.

Any person who is eligible to mentor and applies through teammates.org between Aug. 1 to Sept. 1 will be entered in a drawing to win one of three exciting prizes.

Last year, the Back to School Challenge ran from Aug. 1 to Nov. 30, bringing in more than 1,300 mentors for students across the Midwest.

“Every child can benefit from a mentor, and we have thousands of young people waiting across our program,” said TeamMates Executive Director Sarah Waldman. “Our goal this year is to serve over 11,000 students.”

During the 2018-2019 school year, TeamMates served more than 10,000 youth in close to 170 communities. The school-based program provides mentors to students from all backgrounds and lifestyles.
