Five high schools in the Dallas-Fort Worth area of Texas are participating in an e-mentoring program, operated through Big Brothers Big Sisters, in which local professionals are more easily able to interact with students. Now, there are plans to expand the mentor2.0 program, which launched in September, to Houston. "This program is speeding up that whole process of getting to know someone," said Big Brothers Big Sisters' marketing director, Dan Stuchal. "The kids are so comfortable with this digital environment that they open up more quickly."
