The Mentoring Program
The Mentoring Program is a school-based program matching community volunteer mentors with students who have been identified by their teacher, principal, counselor or parent as needing extra support, attention or friendship. A mentor has the opportunity to meet with the child during the school day: during class time, outside of the class, lunch time, or during recess. The time spent mentoring will be guided by the child’s need.
Our mentors are screened, trained and matched to a child for the entire school year. Mentors commit to meeting with their mentee once a week for an hour. That time is flexible, based on the child’s need. The mentor will be informed of the mentoring goal once we receive the referral form indicating if the relationship shall be primarily academic, relationship building or behavioral.
