A number of Beneteau USA employees from the company's Marion, S.C., plant volunteered their time to eat lunch once a month with 82 students from the Marion Intermediate School.

"This is more than just a mentoring program, our people are role models to these children," said Jennifer Reinman, Beneteau USA's human resources director, in a statement.

"With Marion School District One serving a high-risk population of youth, there is increasing data that supports the profound effects of mentoring," said Patricia Atkinson, curriculum coordinator at Marion Intermediate School, in a statement. "Mentoring sessions offer an ideal setting to discuss their future as students, their personal goals and their need to begin looking at occupational options offered in Marion."
