The School-Based Mentoring Program is a joint venture between Partners Mentoring Youth and Madison, Meeker and Brentwood schools. We are currently recruiting volunteers for the 2016-2017 school year to provide one-to-one mentoring services in these schools to students who are facing significant challenges in their social, academic, and/or personal lives. Volunteers (School-Based Mentors) spend a minimum of 1 hour each week with a student (Junior Partner) and commit for at least one academic year. Matches are based on the needs of the youth, as well as on schedules, personalities, and interests of both the Junior Partners and School Based Mentor. Partnerships decide how they spend their time together; activities could include eating lunch together, playing games, shooting hoops, or just hanging out. Partners also has community mentoring opportunities available at this time.
