Our Mission

The BCMP develops the life skills and educational achievement of local youth, by ensuring that they are connected with
a caring and supportive adult who can help them realize their dreams and potential.

About The Boone County Mentoring Partnership

Started in 2009 with a grant from the Jay Martin Fund for Children, a component fund of the Community Foundation of Boone County, the BCMP is the umbrella organization for a youth mentoring program (Spark), a middle school program (Ignite), and the Graduation Coaching program at the high school level which was originally funded by a 2010 Community  Action of Greater Indianapolis job stimulus grant. All BCMP programs are fully funded by grant dollars, as well as through generosity from private and corporate donations.
