The mentor application is designed to make sure you understand the commitment and maturity you must demonstrate for the entire school year.
As a teen mentor you will be meeting once a week with an elementary student in grades K-5. Teen mentors may be asked to mentor at any elementary school in the district. Your school assignment will be made with elementary children’s needs in mind. Many mentors have returned to the elementary school they attended. Your preference for elementary school will be honored when possible.
Most teen mentors schedule their weekly mentoring time at the end of the school day and miss all or at least a portion of their sixth period class. Please consider your class schedule when applying for mentoring.
