True role models are those who possess the qualities that we would like to have and those who have affected us in a way that makes us want to be better people. To advocate for ourselves and our goals and take leadership on the issues that we believe in. We often don't recognize our true role models until we have noticed our own personal growth and progress. I think that I serve as a temporary role model to my younger sister but she just doesn't want to admit it yet.

The Role Models of Excellence Project is a dropout prevention, mentoring program committed to closing the minority male achievement access gap by guiding minority male students along a carefully charted path through grades K and college or ensuring the attainment of other post-secondary credentials, and increasing their employability in higher wage, high skills jobs within high demand industries. The expansion program in Pinellas County Schools serves more than students in 20 middle and senior high school chapters, and in Duval County Public Schools opened another 10 chapters. Over 6, volunteers dedicate their time and resources to the Role Models of Excellence Project. The program primarily serves children who are being reared without the benefit of a father or a positive male role model, and most students enter the program in middle school and continue activities throughout their high school and post-secondary education years.
A role model is someone who you can look to as a good example of who you want to be like. A mentor is someone with whom you have a personal relationship, who offers guidance, advice and a sounding board for your ideas. Most successful and happy people I have met or read about have had role models.
