About

*Did You Know That Children Who Were At-Risk but Had a Mentor Are:

  • 55% more likely to enroll in college
  • 78% more likely to volunteer regularly
  • 90% are interested in becoming a mentor
  • 130% more likely to hold leadership positions.

Sterling Elementary has a need for volunteer Mentors and Tutors for some students in grades 1-5. We provide training and, once we have found your perfect match, will coordinate around your schedule. All Mentor/Tutoring will take place at the school during normal school hours (8:00am-2:15pm).

We ask our Mentors to visit with their student two times a month, for approximately 30 minutes. You can eat with your Mentee in the school cafeteria, or read/color/play board games in the library. Tutors are asked to visit once a week for approximately 30-45 minutes to help with the reading and/or math assignments. Volunteers will be asked to complete an on line background check through the district, and will need a valid picture ID to gain entrance.

If you are interested in applying, or would just like some more information on our request, please use the contact information on this form.
