LINCOLN — Tom Osborne, the founder of the TeamMates mentoring program, said Wednesday that the program has stepped up its game in hopes of attracting more mentors.
TeamMates serves more than 9,400 youths and has been gaining about 500 mentee-mentor matches each year, said Osborne, the former Nebraska football coach and athletic director.
Started as a community outreach program for the Nebraska football team in 1991, Teammates has flourished.
But the youth mentoring organization is in need of help in North Platte.
After a high of 65, the number of mentors in the community has dropped to 36, while the number of youths in need of a mentor has grown to near 100, organizers say.
