MentorSuccess™ evolved out of the nationally recognized, research-based HOSTS (Help One Student to Succeed) program that enjoyed over thirty years of sustained nation-wide success. Based on verifiable results with students from all ethnic backgrounds, HOSTS earned many awards from nationally recognized groups including the US Department of Education, naming the Harlingen, Texas, site as a mentoring model for the nation. Though the original program focused mostly on mentoring students in language arts, Dr. Willbur always wanted to also emphasize using mentoring for the development of leadership success skills and characteristics. Our ultimate goal with the MentorSuccess™ program is to teach students not only to read, but to succeed and lead. To do this we are constantly surveying and curating children’s literature, games, and other learning materials to include in our Learning Pathway Generator arranged by age, reading level, interest area, and leadership skills. We want to create the most-reachable, most-teachable, aha moments that attract a child to learning. Once a child learns that leadership and learning can be fun, they are on a pathway to success!
