High School Mentors

Do you need community service hours? Do you want to gain experience working with children? Do you want to be a positive influence on a younger child? Are you looking to build your job/college resume? Do you want to help teach your favorite interests/ sports to a child in your school district? Then you should become a HS mentor. 

In order to become a HS mentor you must fill out an application and provide references. We will then have a short interview along with trainings and have your principal sign off on your involvement in our program.
