That’s all it takes to inspire a teen to make the right decisions and build a better life!

With dedicated Video Mentors in their lives, Infinite Family’s Net Buddy mentees exceed all expectations in school and life – 100% of Infinite Family’s graduates last year qualified for college versus 60% of their non-mentored peers. Their Video Mentors were their secret weapon for success. 

Here are some of what our Net Buddies have recently said about their Video Mentors:

“It’s not everyday that you get to meet someone who inspires you, who seems to care, and always makes time for you.” - Net Buddy Lutendo 

“We came up with Solutions together. No One has done that with me.”

 - Net Buddy Khotso

“My inspiration and constant reminder on why I continue to give my best is my Video Mentor.” - Net Buddy Mzoxolo

“Being a Net Buddy helped to improve my English and writing skills which helped with my final exams.” - Net Buddy Reshogile

While our Net Buddy mentees learn the grit to succeed where others often fail, their Video Mentors report a uniquely inspiring experience that makes their lives more interesting and fulfilling. 

“My Video Conversation with my Net Buddy mentee are the highlight of my week.” 

- Video Mentor Douglas

“If someone asks you to give 30 minutes to change a child’s future, why wouldn’t you?” 

- Video Mentor Amy

What does it take to be a Video Mentor?
