School-Based Mentoring: A Lesson in Friendship!
Kids enjoy School-Based Mentoring. And parents know what a difference it makes. But some of the biggest supporters of School-Based Mentoring are actually teachers. They see students come back from their one hour a week mentoring sessions with confident smiles, ready to learn and ready to succeed.
Kids Who Feel Better About Themselves Do Better in School.
School-Based Mentoring is not a classroom program, and it's not tutoring. School-Based Mentoring is one-to-one mentoring that takes place in the schools. Of course, some students do talk with their mentors about class, or do homework, or read together, but it's really all about friendship and guidance. You can play or jump rope or shoot hoops — whatever you and the student enjoy. You don't need any special training or certification. If you can spend a few hours a month, arranged around your needs and the school's schedule, you may be able to start participating in a School-Based Mentoring program this fall!
