Johnson-Brock TeamMates Community of Year Honoree
The Johnson-Brock TeamMates Chapter has been selected by the TeamMates organization as Community of the Year. Johnson-Brock began a TeamMates mentoring program in 2013 with four mentor/mentee matches. The chapter currently serves over 92 matches.
The TeamMates Mentoring Program began in 1991 with the vision of University of Nebraska Head Football Coach Tom Osborne and his wife Nancy. Coach Osborne felt that the athletes in his program could make an impact on the middle school students, and 22 football players began meeting with middle school students in the Lincoln Public Schools. Of the original mentees, 21 went on to graduate from high school while one left school early to pursue a successful Motocross career. Eighteen of the original mentees also obtained some form of post-secondary education.
