The Andrew L. Hicks, Jr. Foundation established Warrior Guides, a 1 on 1 mentoring club through Henderson High School in the fall of 2011. The club matches up to 100 Henderson students with up to 100 Chester 4th, 5th, & 6th graders each year, who BOTH live and go to school in the city.
The goal of the Warrior Guides program is to provide an opportunity for Henderson High School students to be a significant influence on the life of a Chester student who may need supplemental support, friendship or encouragement. Each member is expected to participate in our 8-10 monthly events throughout the school year. These meaningful relationships further develop understanding between students from different communities, cultures, religions, and who have inequitable access to educational and recreational resources.
*Due to COVID-19 and the need for schools to go virtual, all of our events up until the new year will be virtual. We will re-visit our event programming after the new year in hopes that we will be able to bring you more in person events.
“Be shepherds over the flock God has entrusted to you. Watch over it as God does: Don’t do this because you have to, but because you want to. Don’t do it out of greed, but out of a desire to serve.” 1 Peter 5:2
