In Gwinnett County Public Schools, we believe in the Power of One…
One caring adult can change a child’s life;
One hour a week can make a difference in a student’s future; and
One-on-one support can help a student on his or her path to becoming a successful and responsible young adult.
With the support of community members and GCPS employees, the district’s Community-Based Mentoring Program is building on the Power of One to mentor hundreds of students in grades 4-12, providing guidance, encouragement, and support to help them reach their potential, both in and out of school. Families around the district can attest to the success of mentoring for their students. Parent Winifred King says her son’s four years in the mentoring program have resulted in improved grades and behavior. Of her son, she says, “He is growing with respect, integrity, and wisdom, all because of his participation in this program. Thank you for instilling positivity and strong moral values for my son.”
It is the policy of Gwinnett County Public Schools not to discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, national origin, age, or disability in any employment practice, educational program, or any other program, activity, or service.
