Did you know kids in quality mentoring relationships are more likely to do better in school and have aspirations to go to college? While school counselors, teachers, and family members all play a role in keeping students in school and learning, the involvement of a mentor can make a meaningful difference in a young person's life and future. GCPS’ Community-Based Mentoring program pairs caring adults with middle school boys whose attendance and behavior are having an adverse impact on their grades and classroom performance.
How can you become a mentor? Mentors attend an orientation and training session, complete a background check, and commit to working with their mentee through May. Mentors make weekly contact, participating in both individual and group activities.
Apply today to be a GCPS mentor so that you can make a difference in the future… one young man at a time. You also can support the program through your donations. Learn more by sending an e-mail to email@example.com, or calling the Office of Academic Support at 678-301-7321.
