Make a Difference! Become a Mentor!

 
 
Make A Difference in the life of a Child...
Become A Mentor!
 
The experts all agree: any effort to help the next generation-especially children at risk-must include mentoring. Mentoring can help young people change direction and do better academically and socially.

A mentor is an adult who, along with parents, provides young people with support, friendship, reinforcement and constructive example. Mentors are good listeners, people who care, and want to help young people develop existing strengths.

How do you become a mentor? Becoming a mentor requires attending a training session, completing an application and a background check. Becoming a mentor also involves committing to spending 30 minutes per week during school lunch hours with a student for the school year and hopefully the following year. We need individuals, businesses, church organizations, and community members to become involved in the mentoring program.
Please contact, Betty Ross, school counselor if you are interested in being a mentor.
