Benefits of Mentoring

Mentoring builds self-esteem, improves academic performance, and positively influences attitudes.

What makes a good mentor?
A good mentor...

  • Is consistent, reliable, and shows up each and every month.
  • Listens well and asks good questions.
  • Is supportive and encouraging.
  • Models a growth mindset through curiosity and perseverance. 

Here’s how mentoring works...

  • All mentors must fill out a mentoring application, attend a training session, and complete a background check before being matched with a student. 
  • Once partnered with a student, the school provides a set time for meeting with your mentee between 8:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.
  • Mentors commit to meet with their student at least once a month for one hour from October through May.
  • Each month, mentors are equipped with a monthly curriculum guide that covers an important character trait and includes fun activities.

We will be there to support you every step of the way!
