The Wren's Nest is in need of mentors to work one-on-one with the students in our Scribes writing program, at KIPP STRIVE Academy. The program is 12 weeks. Mentors would need to commit to 1 hour every Wednesday (3:15 p.m. - 4:15 p.m.), Jan. 24 - April 25. The Scribes are given a theme to write a story about and at the end of the program, their stories are published in a book.

People who should apply to be mentors are those who have experience working with middle school children, teachers/tutors, professional freelance writers, amateur writers, authors, journalists, college students majoring in English or Journalism. You must be OK with us running your name for a background check for "sex offender" only. There will be a Mentor Orientation for only 1 hour at The Wren's Nest on Friday 1/12.
