The State's Attorney's Office Truancy Prevention Program (TPP) is looking for Volunteer Facilitators, Mentors and Site Coordinators, for the fall semester 2018 from September through December. We will be serving over 150 middle school students, and you will make a difference! 7 out of 10 children in the program experience a 60-65% reduction in unexcused absence.
The Truancy Prevention Program consists of 10-weekly meetings each semester in Montgomery County Public middle schools during school hours between the hours of 8:30-3:00.
Mentors serve as positive role models for the middle school students. They will provide consistent support, guidance and motivation. They will talk to students about goal-setting, planning, self-advocacy, hearlthy peer interaction, decision-making, aspirations, etc.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
We'll work with your schedule.
