Teen Mentor Program
Our Teen Mentor Program offers a way for teens to use their talents and skills as friends and role models for younger children who need additional emotional support and positive attention at school. Our high school students mentor elementary school students for one hour, one day a week during school time.
Who Benefited More?
Joshy, a 9 year old Tribal boy, was matched with an eccentric retired special education teacher, Tim. Both of them were looking for a meaningful connection. Joshy had missed many days of school prior to being matched with Tim, a retired teacher. Although very bright, Joshy was falling behind in his academic work.
