Become a Take Stock In Children Mentor
What is a Mentor?
A mentor is a caring, compassionate adult who chooses to share their time with a young person, offering him/her support, guidance, and encouragement. If you can donate half an hour per week, you can change a life by helping a child build a solid foundation of values, establish goals, improve his/her academic and life skills, while developing his/her self-esteem and confidence.
Our success rate at Take Stock in Children is a result of a comprehensive approach provided by our program. One of the key and proven success factors is the role of the mentor. More and more people want to have a lasting, profound impact in their community. They understand that the commitment of becoming a mentor can change a child’s life while helping them grow personally. Can you remember adults who paid attention to you; who believed in you; and who guided you during your childhood? These individuals served as mentors. Wouldn’t you like to have someone think of you as their life-changing, trusted mentor?
Where & When Does Mentoring Occur?
Mentoring sessions are about 30 minutes each week and occur at a school near your home or workplace, during school hours. The days and times of mentoring sessions are arranged between the mentor and mentee, depending on their individual schedules and classes. As a result, mentoring is convenient for both students and mentors.
