The Mazie Mentoring Program
The Mazie Mentoring Program fulfills the legacy of John Andrew Mazie, a man who was a mentor to many young people before tragically dying in a car accident. In his honor, his parents Barbara and Lowell Mazie created the Mazie Mentoring Program. Since it’s foundation in 1998, the Mazie Mentoring Program has served over 900 students in both Framingham and Waltham High Schools. As of September 2019, a third program will be serving students at Marlborough High School. The program recruits and trains 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.
