The John Andrew Mazie Memorial Foundation
The John Andrew Mazie Memorial Foundation is a nonprofit organization that strives to fulfill the legacy of John Andrew Mazie, a man who enjoyed helping young people before dying in a car accident. Since 1998, the foundation’s Mazie Mentoring Program has operated for students at Framingham (MA) High School. Starting in 2010, a second program has existed for students at Waltham (MA) High School. The program operates through the recruitment and training of adult volunteers to mentor and act as role models for high school students at-risk of not reaching their full potential. Its objective is to provide young people with the support to help them achieve their goals and succeed.
