MEET = Mentoring, Equipping, Education, Transportation

Many teens living in low-income areas have a hard time getting their drivers license, because they have to put in the practice hours and do not always have someone available and/or a car to drive in. The idea here is that a teen would be matched up with a mentor. This mentor would provide the car for the teen (or use some that were made available) and while riding along for all of the necessary hours, build a mentoring relationship with him or her.

As an added twist, what if we added a grocery shopping delivery service to this mentoring program?  The teen and mentor could stop at the grocery store while out practice driving, and then make the delivery. In this way, the teen would be learning about grocery shopping (while with the mentor) and also be giving back to the community be doing the shopping and delivery.
