Mentor Program merges with Community Action

South Boston Vice Mayor Tina Wyatt-Younger cuts the ribbon signifying the merger of the Mentor Role Model Program and Tri-County Community Action Agency on Wednesday alongside Tri-County’s CEO Petrina Carter, Chamber President Mitzi McCormick, South Boston Town Manager Tom Raab and other TCCAA and Mentor Role Model staff and supporters. Carter said the merger came about after she decided the agency needed to expand on its children’s program. She recognized the strong work of the Mentor Role Model Program and decided to reach out to the program to see if they could help expand their services.
