Support Austin ISD students by becoming a mentor! APIE mentors work one-on-one with students during the school day. They help students improve their social and study skills, strengthen their communication skills, and build self-confidence. They inspire children to develop new interests, explore career possibilities, and achieve their personal and academic goals. Mentors may choose to work with Austin ISD middle and high school students (6 th through 12 th grades).

APIE mentors should be:

  • Positive, caring adults
  • Able to commit to 30-45 minutes each week to virtually meet with the student consistently throughout the school year
  • Non-judgmental and supportive
  • Good listeners
  • Complete a background check

APIE mentors receive:

  • Initial mentor training and training on the virtual platform.
  • Introduction to supportive strategies to use with students in building effective mentor relationships
  • Support from an on-campus mentor coordinator.

Be who you needed when you were younger. We are currently recruiting and training mentors and we need YOU!

Description

Focusing on Austin ISD’s schools located in under-resourced communities and serving predominantly economically disadvantaged students, Austin Partners in Education delivers innovative, volunteer-driven academic and mentoring programs. APIE’s 1,550 volunteers work with students at pivotal junctures in their education, providing a vital extension of academic and social/emotional support to students. Through the flagship Classroom Coaching program, students benefit from small group (3:1 or below) instruction from volunteers drawn from more than 200 Austin area government agencies, businesses and community organizations.

APIE is currently implementing the following programs:

  • Middle School Math Classroom Coaching: Volunteers in the classroom work weekly with students to build a strong foundation in middle school math, putting them on track to succeed in high school algebra.
  • College Readiness: College Readiness Advocates provide tutoring and college access mentoring to prepare students for college-level coursework.
  • Mentoring (all grades): Volunteers work one-on-one with students during the school day to help students improve their social and study skills, strengthen their communication skills, and build self-confidence.
