Mentoring provides an opportunity to help shape the development of a young person. It helps the mentor hone her/his skills in providing guidance to another person, and helping that person develop life skills, such as decision making and conflict resolution. In the process, the mentor enhances her/his interpersonal skills such as listening.
The bonds made through the Mentoring Program go beyond high school, and the resources shared help propel the students forward in life, education and career.
Our mentor/mentee pairs spend a lunch hour together on a Tuesday or Wednesday
- Eating Lunch
- Participating in topical group/pair conversation
- Acquiring assets to help prepare the mentee for college, career, and life
- Have a willing heart to care about and guide the development of a young person
