CHANGE A LIFE. BE A MENTOR.
Trinity Christian School is establishing mentoring program designed to teach character development and behavioral expectations to middle school and high school students as they prepare for high school, college, and ultimately, the professional world. The success of the program will depend on the participation of caring adult volunteers.
Could one of them be you?
BECOME A MENTOR, and CHANGE A LIFE FOREVER
We are always looking for Christian mentors for the program. Questions and answers below:
How much time will it take?
Mentors and Mentees will get together at least twice a month for about an hour, but are allowed to meet more often.
Where will the sessions take place?
All sessions will take place at the school. In addition, mentors are highly encouraged to attend their mentee's games, concerts, recitals, etc.
What time of day will we meet?
Mentors may have lunch with their mentees or meet at the end of the school day between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.
Will I meet with my mentee alone, or in groups?
Most sessions will be one-on-one, but on occassion will be done as groups
How will mentees be assigned to mentors?
We will assign mentors to mentees based on grade level and mentee need.
When will each program begin?
The hope is to have mentors and mentees matched up by the end of the first nine weeks
Is there a financial commitment?
There is no financial commitment.
What should my mentee and I do at our sessions?
Mentors should plan activities that encourage conversation and opportunities to discuss academic goals, as well as general topics surrounding character and teen development.
The setting should be informal, yet structured to generate a measurable outcome. Resources to assist Coaches will be provided.
How much time must I commit?
We are asking mentors to commit for an entire academic year to ensure consistent dialogue between the mentor and mentee.
