Simpson Middle School Mentoring Program
Building on the inherent potential of our young people through exploration, connection, and support.
Mentors are matched one-to-one with a 5th to 8th grade student and commit to meeting weekly (approximatley 3 visits/month throughout the year.) As a mentor you will plan activities with your mentee ranging from going out for ice cream to volunteering together. Free/discounted tickets to community events and activities are provided. Group outings or trainings will be offered approximately every other month.
The mentoring program builds on the inherent potential of our youth through three key areas; exploration, connection, and support.Mentors and mentees are supported by SHS for 1 year with regular monitoring and supervision, group and individual offerings, and trainings. Informal mentoring may occur beyond the year if all parties (parent/guardian, mentor, and mentee) wish to continue the relationship.
