School-Based Mentoring

What is
School-Based Mentoring?

In February 2023, we launched our School-Based Mentoring program. Kids spend a significant portion of their time – 35 hours a week – at school, where they make crucial decisions and shape their identities. That's why we're offering a unique opportunity for a mentor to work alongside them within their school, providing emotional, social, and academic support throughout these formative moments.

Since February 2023

Mentors

Role

School-based Mentors aren't counselors, they aren't parents, they aren't just friends. Mentors are wise adults who a mentee can rely on and trust. They are there to teach life skills, navigate (social, emotional, academic) issues, and to be a consistent advocate.

Commitment

 We ask for a full school-year commitment (August-May). Mentorships are expected to meet for an average of an hour on a weekly basis.

In-school Mentors are only meeting with their students with-in the school building. 

Getting Involved

1) The process begins by filling out our online application.

2) After that is reviewed Mentors will be invited to a non-committal orientation meeting. 

3) If one decides to proceed as a Mentor and passes the screening process, they will be matched with a mentee.

We encourage the process to start before the next school year begins.
