About

Research indicates that students who meet regularly with mentors are:

  • 52% less likely to skip school
  • 46% less likely than their peers to start using illegal drugs
  • 27% less likely to start drinking (source: www.mentoring.org)

Crystal Lake Elementary (Lakeland) is a Title I school and their children are struggling in some subjects to the point, that the children themselves are actually asking if there are any volunteers that can work individually with them to help them be successful in school. Many students do not have anyone at home that can assist and the school faculty have over-extended themselves trying to help.

Work with students during their PE Time in their Resource Center Classroom and help strengthen their knowledge & skills in subjects in which they may find challenging. The school provides fun games, flash cards and books to read and has a staff person in the room to help answer questions.

Time: 45 min. 1 x week or 30 min. - 2 x week; We will match your time you have available with designated student PE times. (Some employers provide paid leave to mentor students - check with your company.)

If you are not already an approved Polk County School volunteer (regardless of which school), the school will have you complete their volunteer application and pay a $25 background screening fee (good for 3 years).

Gain satisfaction in knowing that you have helped to increase a child’s self-confidence & knowledge to put him/her on a path to a brighter future! School invites Mentors to join them annually for a volunteer appreciation event.
