Ameritas “Exceeding Expectations” With TeamMates
The TeamMates Mentoring Program of Lincoln (lincolnteammates.org) relies on support from local businesses, service clubs and faith-based organizations to achieve their mission to positively impact the world by inspiring youth to reach their full potential.
Ameritas has embraced TeamMates’ 2016-2017 theme of “Exceeding Expectations”. At the beginning of the 2015-2016 school year, Ameritas had 26 mentors. Employees quickly realized the positive impact of mentoring and the number of mentors grew to 51. Two of the mentors meet with multiple students bringing the total number of matches to 53. Fifty-four percent of the mentors are members of the “24 or More Club” meaning they have met with their student mentee at least 24 times during the school year.
Ameritas most recently supported TeamMates by holding a mentor-recruiting event featuring TeamMates co-founder, Dr. Tom Osborne and by initiating a Game Drive to collect board games to distribute to the 18 schools where Ameritas employees mentor.
“Ameritas is proud to partner with TeamMates. We want our youth in Lincoln to thrive and graduate from high school. Our commitment to the community is a core value of who we are and our employees live it day in and day out,” said Liz Ring Carlson, Director of Marketing.
