Tom Osborne to speak in North PlatteTell North Platte what you think

Dr. Tom Osborne’s message “Mentoring Matters” will take center stage in North Platte on Monday, June 19.

The former University of Nebraska football coach, who founded Teammates mentoring program, plans to recruit mentors around the community. His first stop will be Great Plains Health at 5 p.m.

From there, he’ll sell and sign copies of his book Mentoring Matters during Family Night at the Nebraskaland Days Wild West Arena around 6:30 p.m., before sharing the Teammates mission with the public at 7 p.m.

The North Platte chapter of Teammates serves students in grades 6-12. Mentees attend Adams Middle School, Madison Middle School, North Platte High and the North Platte Catholic Schools.

Currently, the chapter has 40 matches with a goal to serve more than 55 youth within the coming year.

The mission of the Teammates is to impact the world by inspiring youth to reach their full potential. Teammates serves nearly 8,000 young people in more than 140 communities across Nebraska, Wyoming, Kansas and Iowa.

Mentors meet with mentees one-on-one in school once a week during the academic year.
