The Consortium for Public Education is proud to announce its newest partnership with the United Way’s Be a Middle School Mentor program.
Be a Middle School Mentor matches adult mentors with middle school students to learn about real careers and jobs, to develop big dreams for their future, to understand the importance of doing well in school and to have another caring adult role model. While the program has taken place (and will continue) at many schools in Pittsburgh there are now three schools in the Mon Valley - Clairton, McKeesport Area & Woodland Hills where mentors meet their mentees once/week for about an hour to catch up and participate in activities that help students think about who they are, their aspirations and the steps they can take to get there.
A staff member from the Consortium for Public Education will be present at each session at Clairton, McKeesport & Woodland Hills. Mentors will have access to resources, ideas, activities and speakers to inspire meaningful conversations between them and their mentees.
Steps to becoming a mentor:
1 Fill out an application at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BAMSM
2 Interview with Consortium staff
3 Complete clearances: Act 33/34 and FBI Fingerprinting (instructions will be sent in an automatic reply after submitting online application)
4 Attend a training
Please contact me with any questions or concerns. We would appreciate it if you could pass this information on to colleagues, friends and family who you believe could change the life of a student in the area. Thank you for your consideration!
