Our mission is to create a replicable model that professionalizes traditional mentoring by using clinicallyfocused mentors to work intensively with youth throughout middle school. Through the science of relationship-based learning, we foster a profound sense of mattering that expands opportunities in the lives of children. The Arthur Project was co-founded by best selling author, Liz Murray and Jeff Muti. Liz's memoir, Breaking Night: My Journey from Homeless to Harvard (also a Lifetime Movie) inspires and guides our mission. We have been working hard to change the standard for the way that traditional youth mentoring is delivered for kids.
