School Mentoring

Love All Serve All - School Mentoring 

The Elkhorn school mentoring program is designed with an academic focus to provide on-going support for student success.  Volunteer mentors are paired with students who are struggling academically, socially or emotionally.  Mentors meet with their mentee at least once a week for 30 to 60 minutes.  Meetings are academic in nature and take place on school grounds.

The program has a slightly different format at each level. At the elementary level, the program can take place before, after or during school. Adult mentors are paired with elementary students who are struggling in one or more subject areas. The middle school program is more individualized and usually takes place during a student’s study hall. High school students who request a mentor will be matched to work with their mentors during non-instructional time. Meetings could take place during study halls, before school, or after school. Needs of the high school mentees are addressed on an individualized basis.

Mentors are asked to volunteer for at least 30 minutes each week for the entire school year. You may indicate preferred grade levels and times. Orientation will be provided and each school has a facilitator available to answer questions.
