Purpose: To increase student success and reduce the potential of a student dropping out of school.

Commitment: The mentor will be matched one-on-one with a student. The mentor will meet with the student at least once a week for 30 minutes to one hour, and will work on school grounds during the school day for at least 12 weeks.

 

Responsibilities:

 

 

1. Set Goals. The mentor will work with the student to develop long-range goals for the student’s academic and personal life. The success of this relationship will depend on the mentor helping the student reduce these goals to short-term, manageable weekly activities.

 

 

2. Be a Friend. The mentor will listen to the student, understand the obstacles the youth perceives, and help him/her find solutions. The mentor will work with the student to use existing services in the school community. The mentor can help with homework or missed class work and encourage attendance.

 

3. Assist with Academic Assignments. The mentor can check homework, assist with test preparation, make suggestions about research, check the student’s assignment list regularly, and tutor the student, if materials are provided by the teacher or staff person at the school.

 

 

4. Be a Role Model. The mentor will be a role model for the student, demonstrating values of punctuality, dependability and reliability.

 

 

5. Encourage the Student to Set Goals and Stay in School. The mentor will help the student appreciate the importance of education, both personally and professionally.

 

 

6. Accept the Student. The student may be of a different race, religion, culture or economic circumstance than the volunteer. A mentor is expected to respect the student for “who they are.”
